The psychiatric profession must ensure that its next generation of leaders has the appropriate skills to provide mental health services in the face of globalization and urbanization, new technologies, and competing demands for shrinking resources. Developing leadership skills and leaders is critical in order to optimise the use of resources, their application, service planning and delivery of services for patients and their families. This is the first book on leadership (rather than management skills) to focus on psychiatry and mental health care. Contributions from international experts with clinical and non-clinical backgrounds pull together the theories and practical skills required to be a successful leader. The aim is to guide mental health professionals in general and psychiatrists in particular on how to gain the relevant skills and on how to utilise these skills and training to take on leadership roles in clinical and organisational settings. The book covers the role of the leader and the skills required for leadership, including chapters on communication, decision-making, team development, mentoring, gender issues in leadership, burnout and more. It includes a section on assessment tools and learning material. Essential reading for all those who aspire to lead in psychiatry!

Recognizing that medical faculty face different questions or issues in different stages of their careers, this handy, practical title offers a comprehensive roadmap and range of solutions to common challenges in the complex and changing Academic Medical Center (AMC). With critical insights and strategies for both aspiring and seasoned academicians, this handbook offers a concise guide for personal career development, executive skill acquisition, and leadership principles, providing actionable, targeted advice for faculty seeking help on a myriad of new issues and situations. Pressures in today’s Academic Medical Center include significant changes to the healthcare system, competition for research funding, transformation of medical education, and recruitment and retention of the ever-evolving workforce. This dynamic environment calls for razor-sharp leadership and management effectiveness to stay competitive. AMC faculty aspire to formal leadership roles for a variety of reasons: to set a new vision, to create change, or to affect policy and resource decisions. For others, weariness of past leadership styles or mistakes may catalyze wanting a chance to set a different tone. In the end, promotional opportunities often come with great administrative and management responsibilities. Management and Leadership Skills for Medical Faculty: A Practical Handbook is a must-have resource for faculty in AMCs and anyone with a role in healthcare leadership.

The landscape of academic surgery has become increasingly complex. Young academic surgeons are now confronted with the task of juggling administrative, clinical, educational, and research responsibilities. While decades ago young faculty would look toward a single “triple threat” mentor, trainees and young junior faculty now must assemble a team of mentors who can help him/her craft a career trajectory for success in academia. In addition, with the emergence of team based science and an emphasis on clinical “crew management” faculty now must hone their leadership skills to be effective in the research and clinical environment. While many books focus on specific research or technical surgical topics, there is a need for an accessible, user-friendly text on the subject of surgical mentorship and leadership. In particular, there is a strong desire among trainees and young surgeons to learn about mentorship, as well as define leadership tools. Currently, there is a gap in the market for a definitive reference on surgical leadership and mentorship. This text will provide a comprehensive, state-of-the art definitive reference on surgical mentorship and leadership. The book will provide a practical, useful guide that reviews select topics on leadership and mentorship, as well as provide key information on how to launch a successful “young” surgical career. This text will focus on key points on how to identify mentors, highlight mentor-mentee “pearls”, as well as define key leadership traits in being successful as an academic surgeon. This text will serve as a very useful resource for young surgical faculty, as well as fellows and residents in a broad array of surgical training programs. Chapters will have multiple “call out” boxes to highlight key lessons learned, as well as provide mentorship and leadership “pearls.” All chapters will be written by experts in their field and will include the most up-to-date information from national and international leaders.

This book informs and supports medical educators and clinic leaders regarding the key clinical and administrative components necessary to run an academic medical practice. From a group of expert faculty from the Society of General Internal Medicine (SGIM) with years of experience in managing academic medical practices, this manual offers comprehensive guidance to the clinic director regarding critical factors involved with running an academic medical practice including, but not limited to: compliance with Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) requirements, clinic orientation and curricula implementation, clinic workflow challenges, billing, coding, and the Primary Care Exception Rule, productivity metrics and quality indicators, evaluation and feedback for trainees, faculty, and clinic staff, implementation of a Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH), development of controlled substance prescribing policies, medical student involvement in resident clinics, and Veteran Affairs practices and non-traditional care settings. The scope of this book is sufficiently broad to be comprehensive and practical while still anticipating the further evolution of the academic medical practice in the years to come. Each chapter focuses on a particular aspect of clinic leadership and will offer real-world examples and management “pearls” for the clinic director. Chapters highlight common challenges and solutions and should be useful across disparate practice settings. This is an ideal resource for clinic directors, core faculty, and clinic leadership in academic outpatient medical practices, particularly those within the field of Internal Medicine, Primary Care, and related specialties.

Emergency medicine attendings who wish to hone their teachingskills can find a number of books on educational strategies writtenby physicians from other disciplines.

Ingeneral, each chapter has been updated and reviewed to make surethe content was something that emergency physician educators coulduse in any country . The chapter contributors are widely regarded as leaders in thefield of emergency medicine education and faculty development.Authors were given free rein to develop their chapters and write intheir own style. They were asked to present their personal views onhow to successfully teach the art of emergency medicine, ratherthan review evidence-based guidelines regarding medical education.As a result, most of the chapters have few references. Thisfirst-person approach to a multi-authored textbook yields acompilation that varies in style from chapter to chapter andexposes the reader to a variety of communication techniques.

Oliver Sacks war der berühmteste Neurologe der Welt. Mit seinen Fallgeschichten hat er uns einen neuen Blick auf Krankheiten und Abweichungen gelehrt: Was bei einem Patienten auf den ersten Blick als Störung erscheint, ermöglicht oft besondere Fähigkeiten der Wahrnehmung. Mit diesem Buch hat Sacks eine von fesselnder Energie getriebene Autobiographie vorgelegt. Ehrlich und anrührend beschreibt er die wichtigsten Stationen seines Lebens – das enge Großbritannien der Nachkriegszeit, das anarchische Kalifornien der frühen Sechziger, schließlich das ewig pulsierende New York. Ob er in der Forschung tätig ist oder in der klinischen Praxis, konstant bleiben die Begeisterung für die Arbeit mit den Patienten und das Schreiben darüber. Gerühmt für seine feinsinnigen Fallgeschichten, analysiert Sacks hier seinen eigenen Fall: Er erzählt von erfüllter und unerfüllter Liebe, der Beziehung zu seiner jüdischen Medizinerfamilie, zeitweiliger Drogensucht und exzessivem Bodybuilding und von unbändigen Glücksgefühlen auf den Road Trips durch die Weiten Nordamerikas. Die Lebensbilanz eines außergewöhnlichen Mediziners – und das Meisterwerk eines großartigen Erzählers.
