Why More Physicians are Seeking MBAs

Ralph Clayman MD, Dean Emeritus of University of California, Irvine School of Medicine, has published a new book that has quickly become #1 on Amazon. Amazon link here!

"Having recently served a 5 year term as dean of the UC Irvine school of medicine, I sought to compile a book based on the input from more than half of the medical school deans/vice chancellors of health who had served for 5 or more years in that position.  Hopefully, the resulting text, “The Compleat Dean”, which contains a wide range of leadership topics, would be of interest/value to you. Many thanks."

MBA for Healthcare

Dr Joseph S. Sanfilippo, Dr Eric J. Bieber, Dr David G. Javitch, and Mr Richard B. Siegrist


​"The purpose of this book is to provide the necessary skills to inspire you to take hold of your own destiny and that of patients.  This education will change your perspective, like a new pair of glasses.  You will see healthcare through the lenses of clinical medicine and business.  While medicine strives for healing, business strives for efficiencies, and our profession is desperately in need of both in order to continue our traditional humanitarian values in this new century.  Enjoy!"
