Abstract Physician leadership has emerged as one of the biggest challenges and opportunities for medical group success. The environment for medical groups has become increasingly complex as the result of five major factors: 1) varying reimbursement methods, 2) growth in the size of groups, 3) technology investments, 4) sale and merger of groups, and 5) regulatory and legal issues. Striking the right balance between too little or too much physician involvement in leading medical groups is a key business decision. Most large, successful businesses view investment in their leaders as critical for success. Medical groups can learn from other businesses that investment in education, coaching, and succession planning for leaders is a key to long-term success.
