Podcast: The Career Lifecycle of a Physician

By AAPL Staff
May 9, 2018

In this Physician Leadership Journal podcast, editorial board member Hal Jenson, MD, MBA, CPE, discusses four peer-reviewed articles that appear in the May/June 2018 issue.

Here is the first installment of a new feature — the Physician Leadership Journal podcast. 

In this debut episode, PLJ editorial board member Hal Jenson, MD, MBA, CPE, talks with PLJ Managing Editor Jason Davis about the peer-reviewed articles that appear in the May/June 2018 issue of the magazine.

Submitted by physician leaders and reviewed by members of the PLJ editorial board, the four articles examine a unified theme — the career lifecycle of a physician, from medical school to late career. Jenson, the founding dean, corporate president and CEO of the Homer Stryker MD Medical School at Western Michigan University, discusses why leadership skills are essential for physicians at every stage of their careers — and why they must not be afraid to seek out leadership roles for the good of the profession.
