Medical School Doesn’t Come With a Management Degree

Los Angeles – Years of medical school does little to teach a physician how to run a business. That’s right, a medical practice is a business. Without management skills, studies show physicians can burn out, and patient care is impacted. L.A. Care is striving to fill the gaps.

Twenty physicians will participate in L.A. Care Health Plan’s second Physician Leadership Program. The program is designed to enhance the leadership and management skills of physicians serving the health care needs of our most vulnerable members — those struggling with homelessness, trauma from incarceration, poverty and mental health issues. 

This leadership training program provides new skills, which ultimately, will improve patient care and health outcomes.

--Dr. Richard Seidman, MD, MPH
Chief Medical Officer, L.A. Care
