The article focuses on the characteristics and competencies of medical practice executives and health care administrators. Some of the information includes research that examines the influence of health care managers' roles and competencies on their performance. However, far less research is available regarding physician competencies. Some research has been conducted to identify the competencies associated with physician leadership effectiveness. Another method for assessing and enhancing physician leaders' effectiveness includes better understanding of their perceptions and beliefs regarding physician leadership.
