Gewertz's New Book for Physicians Discusses Leadership

A new book by Bruce Gewertz, MD, is designed to help physicians improve their leadership skills.

Gewertz, Cedars-Sinai surgeon-in-chief and chair of the Department of Surgery, wrote The Best Medicine: A Physician's Guide to Effective Leadership with Dave C. Logan, PhD, co-founder and president of the management consulting firm CultureSync, a faculty member at the University of Southern California Marshall School of Business and a New York Times best-selling author.

The book provides a theoretical framework for visionary leadership as well as management techniques to achieve success. The authors focus on maintaining a consistent set of behavioral characteristics for the leader and the organization.

The text uses the authors' personal experiences along with case studies to illustrate the principles and practices of successful leaders.
