Three Emerging, Essential Leadership Roles in Academic Medicine
The upheaval that’s taking place across academic medicine – from widespread consolidation to clinician burnout to severe margin pressures – has leadership teams searching for solutions, and for executives who can solve problems, seize opportunities and envision a different future.
In Academic Health Focus from The Governance Institute, WittKieffer’s Kimberly Smith, Linda Komnick and Hillary Ross profile three leadership roles that are emerging to propel academic medical centers into uncharted territories: Chief Transformation Officers, Chief Wellness Officers and Chief Digital Officers. These positions intersect with each other as they all incorporate elements of institutional transformation, culture change and the implementation of new technologies.
