While the opportunities may be substantial, physicians who are interested in pursuing an administrative career should be aware of the challenges embodied in the role of physician executive, such as job turnover, alienation from peers, and overcoming the “caducean ceiling.” Healthcare systems that are serious about transforming themselves must harness the energies of physicians as organizational leaders, and physicians who are equal to the task must supplement their medical training with training in business and management.
