The article presents questions about medical leadership issues and physician executive concerns. One of the queries is related to the issue of dealing with a moral conflict with the boss. Another question is related to the role of physician leadership. What inspires a physician to go down that road? The reader wishes to know the difference between physician leaders and other leaders. Typical reasons include wanting to make a difference beyond the care of individual patients, dissatisfaction with things in their organization or with health care in general, the exciting prospect of learning new things, a desire for more influence or money, professional boredom, sometimes even just a simple desire for change.
