About this Textbook

This textbook covers all general areas of knowledge required for a trainee, generalist medical administrator, and doctor training to be a medical administrator specialist. In 16 chapters, all the key topics on medical administration and leadership are covered. Some of the key topics included are: health systems and policy, health law, private health and insurance, health disaster planning, population and public health, health information and technology, and health economics and financial management.

Medical practitioners of today will be part of huge changes in medical practice. There are going to be continuing developments in biomedical sciences and clinical practice, new health priorities, rising expectations among patients and the public, and changing societal attitudes. Basic knowledge and skills, while fundamentally important, will not be enough on their own. Doctors thus need to demonstrate leadership combined with sound management skills to drive the necessary changes required to meet the challenges head.

It is an invaluable resource from a wide spectrum of physicians from specialty areas, clinician managers from other health professions, as well as non-clinical managers working in health. This is a gateway text for trainees in medical administration, specialist medical administrators, aspiring medical managers, health service managers, and heads of service and departments in various medical specialities.
