Physician Leadership: The Implications for a Transformed Delivery System

Together with the American College of Physician Executives, the PLF held a half-day session in July 2013 to better understand the changing landscape and the leadership competencies physicians will need to be effective partners with hospitals and health systems and move toward a more accountable and efficient health delivery system.

The PLF, as part of its focus to foster strong physician-hospital relations, has sought to identify and encourage leadership development opportunities for physicians. To that end, this report highlights the case for developing physician leaders, identifies characteristics to consider for leadership education programs, and concludes with the proceedings from the PLF’s educational summit.
