Ophthalmic Leadership: A Practical Guide for Physicians, Administrators and Teams

What constitutes leadership in an ophthalmic setting? What dimensions of leadership are the most critical for effective management in any ambulatory care setting? These are good questions, and easier to ask than answer, particularly now, as business and regulatory environments have been shifting so drastically and so adversely in eye care…with worse threatened. Business leadership, unlike medicine, is not a so-called “learned” profession, but rather comes largely through the slow, personal accumulation of on-the-job case histories. This book is organized into more than 62 chapters presenting the author’s and guest contributors’ experience and perspectives. It’s an opportunity to add their case histories to your own.
