This paper reports on a new and innovative initiatives undertaken to develop the first intensive residential management program for clinician managers in Australian hospitals.
A number of health care experts have argued that the reform of the health system, and public hospitals in particular, can only occur if clinicians are given, and take on, greater management responsibilities.
This paper outlines why there has been resistance to this occurring and the pressures for this to change.
It then discusses how the introduction of the Management for Clinicians Program has begun to enhance and encourage a greater acceptance of the clinician manager role in hospitals.
It describes how the program seeks to promote a greater understanding and acceptance of management amongst clinicians.
The paper also outlines how the program was designed and implemented.
While short courses for clinician managers have been available for sometime in Australia, the program described in this paper is path breaking for a number of reasons.
