Clinical leadership and teamwork improve the quality, safety, and cost-effectiveness of healthcare delivery. Due to this, a growing number of healthcare systems are requiring their clinicians to participate in formal leadership training programs, but instructors face the challenge of how to successfully develop and measure these programs.

Preparing Physicians to Lead in the 21st Century provides innovative insights into improving healthcare delivery and the impact of formal leadership training on the personal and professional life of medical professionals. It examines the form, function, and design of clinical leadership programs and their relationships to value-based decision making and creating a successful organized learning climate. Highlighting topics such as program assessment, cohort relationships, and clinical leadership standards, this book is designed for educators, instructional designers, medical professionals, researchers, and academicians.
