You have an exceptionally enlightened panel there who are aware that leaders who understand the clinical side of the organization - ideally physicians - are the key to creating a quality company and competitive advantage in the very near future. Unfortunately 90% of healthcare organizations fail to see this and are choosing to deal with physician turnover rather than grow their physician leaders. The basic laws of caregiver energy dictate that a doctor can't give what they haven't got. So a physician friendly workplace with lower than the average one in three burnout rate is key. IMHO ... only physicians with clinical experience can meld this kind of a workplace with a profitable workplace. Fingers crossed in Seattle, Dike Dike Drummond MD TheHappyMD (dot) com
