Praise for Physician Leadership

"Leadership in healthcare is not a 'lifetime achievement award,' but is, in truth, the set of learned knowledge and applied skills with which a leader inspires others to achieve what they believe is beyond their reach. Physician Leadership is well organized and thoughtfully annotated and will provide a useful framework to build a practical leadership foundation for those on a lifelong leadership journey, as related by one of the most respected leaders in our field."

--JEFFREY P. GOLD, MD, Chancellor, University of Nebraska Medical Center

"I heard Dr. Nichols' voice as I read this--kind and wise. She is an uber-mentor and friend to our profession. We need her voice now more than ever."

--CHRISTIAN T. CABLE, MD, MHPE, FACP, FACOI, Director of Graduate Medical Education, Baylor Scott & White Health, Temple, TX

"To call Dr. Nichols a trailblazer would be a gross understatement. In this book, she 'pays it forward' with lessons and advice that will guide the aspiring physician leader on a path to success. I highly recommend this well referenced work to all such physicians."

--BOYD BUSER, DO, FACOFP dist., Past President, American Osteopathic Association, Clinical Professor, University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine

"Karen Nichols, DO, presents a refreshing, practical, realistic, engaging, and personal guide on becoming an effective physician leader. She challenges the assumption that physician clinical expertise is synonymous with, and easily transferable to, 'effective' physician leadership. A must-read."

--BARBARA ROSS-LEE, DO, MA, FACOFP, President-elect, American Osteopathic Foundation

"This book, with its practical, conversational style, will guide you through the steps of knowing your own leadership strengths and areas in need of further growth. It will help you develop the skills you will need to succeed."

--JESSICA L. BIENSTOCK, MD, MPH, Professor, Associate Dean for Graduate Medical Education / Designated Institutional Official, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine

"Here's the book we've been waiting for. All the steps needed to take you from being a great physician to a great physician leader, from a true expert in the field. Dr. Nichols has created a roadmap to success that is worth your read."

--MARGARET A. WILSON, DO, Chair, AACOM Board of Deans, Dean, Professor, Department of Family Medicine, Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine, A.T. Still University
