In healthcare, Physicians – not executives, nurses, or politicians – are the ones who hold the highest levels of licensing to do the most extensive levels of care. They are the ones who lead the procedural teams and make things happen. A lot of the culture and morale depends on the physician.
I am stepping away from other voices to urge physicians to work WITH administrators instead of perpetuating the “us vs them” default.
We need you – physician – at the table of leadership so that you can create common sense policies that serve patients best.
As we sadly see played out daily in politics, a house divided cannot stand. It’s going to take a unified front with administration to make this happen. You belong there, you can do it – physicians are the leaders of healthcare.
