MD 2.0: Physician Leadership for the Information Age

by Grace Terrell, MD, MMM, FACP, CPE, FACPE, and J.M. Bohn, MBA

In today's complex society, health care challenges are no longer adequately addressed by the traditional paternalistic physician role. Health care must be physician-led, but patient-centered. In this paradigm shift, effective leadership must be collaborative rather than authoritarian, proactive rather than reactive.

MD 2.0: Physician leadership for the Information Age takes you on a historical journey of the medical profession and the transitions that brought it to where it is today. The authors analyze the factors affecting the development of physician leaders, address some of the barriers facing physician leaders, and provide insight about how to overcome these barriers.

MD 2.0 is about the transformation that will help physicians strengthen their ability to lead. You'll get the insight necessary to think through the implications of leadership and health policy considerations in the current environment.

Grace Terrell is a nationally recognized physician leader who brings more than 20 years of clinical and practice leadership to the development of this new literary work. J.M. Bohn is a health care communications and research specialist who has co-authored books on accountable care and clinical integration.

Member price $35

Nonmember price $55
