The perspective of physician executives is “crucial to shaping the future health care system” (Leatt, 2004, p.171). With the increasing need for physician leadership comes a need to increase executive education for physicians and to better define roles and responsibilities. This article will suggest eight models for educating physician executives, as well as recommendations for those seeking to start or improve programs to educate physician executives. This article will focus on physician executive education in the United States although there may be some lessons for physician executives in other nations with different health systems.
