"The Physician's Survival Guide for the Hospital"

by Samuel H. Steinberg, Ph.D., FACHE

In today's challenging environment, physicians need to maximize their hospital productivity. This book will help!

The Physicians Survival Guide For the Hospital solves this problem by having an experienced hospital administrator reveal the information needed for each of these groups to be successful in the hospital environment; for physicians to learn the best and most efficient ways to get their hospital work accomplished, and for hospital administrators and practice administrators to be knowledgeable about what physicians need to take care of their patients.

This step-by-step guide takes you through all of the issues of physician-hospital practice, generating better teamwork, avoiding common pitfalls and mistakes, and providing a road map to make the hospital a better place for patients and staff.   Practice administrators will learn skills and information that will improve their job performance and enhance their standing with their physician colleagues.  Hospital administrators will learn what physicians need to take care of their patients; and physicians, those just starting their practice as well as the more seasoned, will become skilled at managing their hospital practice and make it a more enjoyable and rewarding experience.
