How Physicians Can Hone their Business Skills

Posted on 17 January 2012



Long gone are the days when physicians served solely as diagnosticians and healers.  In today’s highly competitive business environment, physicians require the managerial and communication skills essential to their career growth and indeed, the growth of the institutions with which they are affiliated.  Oxford Medical, a leading, highly reputable provider of continuing education, understands this need and has responded to it with targeted courses.


Appropriately named, the site’s medical management course is critical for any practitioner seeking to expand his or her responsibilities into managing others.  This 18-point CPD-accredited programme was created by the Royal Academy of Medical Colleges in cooperation with the NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement of the Medical Leadership and Competency Framework (MLCF).  Included in this three-day course are the development of key communication skills, management of diversity, and more, as the site will explain.


The medical teaching course is designed to develop and enhance physicians’ teaching abilities: skills that enhance the value of healthcare practitioners, whether those practitioners are consultants or empowered to practice in specific healthcare facilities.  Through this programme, working in small groups, medical professionals engage in a teach the teacher course, acquiring disciplines that will facilitate their transfer of knowledge to interns and nursing staff.


The consultant interview course is vital to physicians seeking consultancy positions.  Such positions are highly competitive, and the detailed, extremely rigorous interview process can often serve as the determining factor in the decision to hire, or not hire, an applicant.  This comprehensive consultant interview programme spans every phase of the interview process.  Development of compelling resumes (curriculum vitae) and the actual interview is covered, including suggestions for establishing an environment of trust with the interviewers, and responding to difficult questions in a manner that transforms negatives into positives.  It includes a mock interview as well as clear, concise instructional materials designed to help job candidates ace the interview.
