About this book


Recognizing that leaders in healthcare institutions face different questions and issues in different stages of their careers, this handy, practical title offers a comprehensive roadmap and range of solutions to common challenges in the complex and changing Academic Medical Center (AMC) and health care organization.  Fully updated from the very well-received first edition and including new chapters, this concise handbook offers a guide for personal career development, executive skill acquisition, and leadership principles, providing real-world, actionable advice for faculty and executives seeking help on a myriad of new issues and situations.  
With a slightly modified title to recognize that leaders in academic medical centers and health care systems are not limited to medical faculty, this new edition maintains much of the content of the successful first edition with revisions based on feedback from readers and colleagues.  New material has been added to reflect what is happening as health care undergoes major transformation. With a broader panel of renowned authors from a mix of healthcare institutions as well as nonmedical experts in leadership and management, the book again meets its primary objective: to provide medical faculty, healthcare executives and other leaders with a contemporary, directly relevant resource that emphasizes practical skills and leadership development advice, including personal improvement, which can be used at any stage of one’s career.  
With critical insights and strategies for both aspiring and seasoned academicians and health executives, Management and Leadership Skills for Medical Faculty and Healthcare Executives: A Practical Handbook, 2nd Edition is a must-have resource for faculty in AMCs and for anyone with a role in healthcare leadership.
