Title Management roles for physicians: Training residents for the reality
Bibliographic information Nov. 1988, Vol.30, No.11, p.863-867. 12 ref.
Abstract The University of Arizona has incorporated administrative training into general preventive medicine residency and occupational medicine residency training programmes to provide preparation at the most appropriate time for future management roles for physicians. Training parallels future specialty choices and focuses on computer skills, fiscal control, budgeting, personnel management, political or regulatory process, programme development, and planning and organisation. Throughout the 2-year training period, residents are in a position to acquire management skills through course work, selected rotations, special projects, and a concentrated 1-month rotation in administration. Practical application is excercised in management settings within the department and in the community. A longitudinal training approach is advocated for similar programmes and for other specialties to ensure successful management of health care with physicians as an integral component.
