As health care systems grapple with the challenge of providing patient centered, integrated care in an increasingly value driven market, the need for physicians to take on new leadership roles is growing rapidly. We will outline why there is a growing demand, describe the special characteristics of physicians and their working environment that must be understood and addressed, and suggest a way to help physicians develop core leadership skills.
