About this book

This volume provides a theoretical framework for visionary leadership as well as specific management techniques to achieve success. The authors focus on maintaining a consistent set of behavioral characteristics for both the leader and the organization as a whole. The text is written in a conversational style using the authors' personal experiences and case studies to illustrate the principles and practices of successful leaders. When helpful, the large body of observational work on professional group dynamics is referenced. The text also provides ideal supplemental material for the many leadership programs offered by physician organizations and health care systems

Developed by an accomplished physician leader from one of the nation's finest hospital systems and an experienced professor of business, The Best Medicine: A Physician’s Guide to Effective Leadership is of great value to physicians of all levels who are interested in improving their understanding of leadership styles and tactics.

About the authors

Dr. Bruce L. Gewertz is Surgeon-in-Chief, Chair of the Department of Surgery and Vice-President for Interventional Services at Cedars-Sinai Health System in Los Angeles. He was recently appointed Vice-Dean for Academic Affairs. He also holds the Harriet and Steven Nichols Endowed Chair in Surgery. From 1989-1992, Dr. Gewertz served as the first Faculty Dean of Medical Education at the University of Chicago, leading a revision of the undergraduate medical school curriculum funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. In 1992, he was named Dallas B. Phemister Professor and Chairman, Department of Surgery and served in this position for 14 years. His recruitment of outstanding clinicians and surgical scientists to Chicago during that era allowed the department to increase its basic and clinical research funding more then three-fold. Since joining Cedars-Sinai in June 2006, he has provided professional leadership and oversight for a large surgical/interventional operation. A particular focus has been personnel and facility upgrades for a multi-disciplinary effort in vascular interventions incorporating vascular surgery, cardiology, neuro-endovascular and peripheral interventions. Within the Department of Surgery, Dr Gewertz has coordinated recruitments across the full spectrum of modern surgical care.

Dave C. Logan is Professor of Management and Organization at Marshall School of Business, University of Southern California.
