HBR post: Should You Get an MBA

A few months ago, there was a blog post on HBR titled, "Should You Get an MBA?" This seems to be a growing question among physicians who are interested in transitioning into a non-clinical career in the business or corporate world. Many will convince you to make the investment to pursue an MBA while others will persuade you to save your time and money since you don't "need" an MBA. Which is right? I believe it depends on your level of experience, your skill sets, your knowledge base, your social network, and your ultimate career goals and ambitions. Those factors are going to be unique for each person.

You can read the HBR perspective by Ed Batista here. Let me quote some interesting comments that might stick out to you:
I knew that some people in my field had negative impressions of MBAs, and I needed a chance to prove myself as an individual before being stereotyped... there are many fields and organizations in which MBAs are viewed with skepticism and even disdain 
While some firms seek out graduates from elite schools, others avoid them out of a concern that they will be difficult to work with and disruptive to the established culture.
What do you think? Does this perspective by Ed Batista sway you one way or the other?

Get certified in Healthcare Quality CPHQ

These days, everyone seems to be talking about Quality Improvement in health care. The Certified Professional in Healthcare Quality (CPHQ) certification incorporates the body of knowledge in the healthcare quality profession, which includes:
  • strategic and operational roles in management and leadership
  • information management, including design and data collection, measurement and analytics, and communication
  • performance/quality measurement and improvement, including planning, implementation and evaluation, and training
  • strategic and operational tasks in patient safety
The CPHQ is the only certification in the profession of healthcare quality. The program is fully accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies of the National Organization for Competency Assurance in Washington, D.C.

ACPE.org now points to PhysicianLeaders.org #leadership

In case you missed the announcement, the American College of Physician Executives (ACPE) is now the American Association for Physician Leadership (AAPL). AAPL may cause you to think about Apple stock on NASDAQ, so it may be best to remember the new URL: PhysicianLeaders.org

Don't get this new website confused with PhysicianLeadership.org - that's a different organization.

ACPE is now: PhysicianLeaders.org

This is not the first time the organization has gone through a name change. When ACPE began in the mid-1970s, it was called the American Academy of Medical Directors (AAMD). Then, soon after the term “physician executive” was coined, the organization became the American College of Physician Executives (ACPE).

Read about the name change here.


Article about re-entering clinical medicine

MedPageToday has posted an article about the costs of re-entering clinical medicine after a physician leaves for an extended period of time. The definition of "extended period of time" varies for each state medical board and many state boards make it very challenging to re-enter the practice of medicine after you have transitioned into a full-time non-clinical career.

The Primary Care Physician Re-entry Act has been proposed before Congress by Congressman John Sarbanes (D-Md.).

lifetime. That is enormous wear and tear on the 26 bones, 33 joints and more

than 100 tendons.

of respondents reported foot pain…
