Tips to help program managers climb the leadership ladder: Be your own mentor
Medical Staff Briefing, February 1, 2010
The hospitalist movement has changed the dynamics of leadership. Traditionally, physicians who had upward of 20 years of clinical experience and were nearing retirement were chosen as leaders, sometimes regardless of their capacity to do the job well. Today, thanks to the under-40 crowd that is leading the hospitalist movement, those in the upper ranks are starting to realize that emotional maturity, interest in taking on a leadership position, and personality traits weigh more than clinical experience.
“The average age of a hospitalist is 37, and the average age of a hospitalist leader is 41,” says Russell Holman, MD, FHM, chief operating officer at Cogent Healthcare in Brentwood, TN, and past president of the Society of Hospital Medicine (SHM), citing the SHM 2007-2008 Biannual Survey. “No one can be afforded that extensive period of clinical practice. As a hospitalist, you are often leading people who are older and have more clinical experience than you do,” he says.
