ABSTRACT
The article examines some of the non-economic obstacles that thwart the upward mobility of physician executives. According to an unscientific poll conducted on the Web site of the American College of Physician Executives, operational inexperience was the number one reason why physician executives failed to attain a higher level of management. The term "physician executive" is used imprecisely and there are potentially too many physician executives vying for openings at the CEO level. Physician executives must understand the training differences between them and lay managers and make a successful transition from technical expert to professional manager.
