Physician as chief executive officer is a trend

Physician as chief executive officer is a trend : "When a search committee began its hunt in January for a new chief executive officer of Aurora Health Care, members quickly learned through market research that a doctor might be the best choice. Executive search consultants from Spencer Stuart, Chicago, conducted lengthy interviews with Aurora employees and community leaders outside the Milwaukee-based health care system. Almost universally, interviewees expressed the desire for a leader whose top priorities were not simply business acumen but patient care, innovation and quality in medical settings."
Makes sense. It's much easier for a physician to learn business skills than for a CEO to learn medical skills !
