ACR 2016 The Crossroads of Radiology

ACR2016VM36 - The Importance of Leadership in Practice Team Building - Lessons Learned from the Military, Successful Large Corporations and Large Academic Practices

May 17, 2016 10:00am ‐ May 17, 2016 12:00pm


The purpose of this session is intended to help physicians at several levels learn the basics about the need for good leadership and followship when developing highly functioning practice structures. Attendees will hear about leadership and team building from three aspects: from the military point of view; from the large corporate point of view; and from the large institution and radiology practice point of view. All of these organizations have been successful by building highly functioning teams to deliver top of the line results. With the consolidation of radiology and other medical specialty practices occurring at an ever increasing pace, the importance of strong team behavior is of increasing importance as the need for building quality assurance programs, metrics, standardization and process improvement in driving the system. Medical and more specifically radiology practices will need to function as well developed teams to provide quality care under the new paradigms. The concepts that will be discussed will translate to building strong medical teams, a goal that will be important in the large medical group of tomorrow. Developed in conjunction with the Radiology Leadership Institute ®

Learning Objectives:

  1. Define the benefits of developing leaders and a strong leadership bench to ensure success comes from multiple levels.
  2. Discuss the importance of followership.
  3. Explain the value of placing the success of a team ahead of the individual success so that all succeed working as a team.
