So much of a medical organization's success rides on the leadership, conduct, and performance of its physicians. How does a health care organization engage its physicians to lead by example? And how does a physician—in the midst of 25 appointments, 30 phone messages, hospital rounds, and the details of “managing” a clinical practice—do what needs to be done to foster satisfaction and loyalty among patients? Practicing Excellence eloquently answers these questions.Stephen C. Beeson, MD, has created a brilliant guide to implementing physician leadership and behaviors that will create a high-performance workplace built on collaboration, commitment, purpose, and making a difference in the lives of the patients it serves.
