For most physicians, the job description is usually little more than “Be a good doctor.” This lack of clear expectations is a major but often overlooked contributor to physician burnout. Then collections, WRVUs, overhead expenses, and other aspects of the job come into play and the relationships between physicians and administrators turns adversarial. Unlike the systemic issues mentioned above, individual medical practices can do something about this.

Stu Schaff, an expert in physician compensation and physician engagement, shows how practices can establish clear expectations for physicians, using examples from actual academic and community-based practices. He also demonstrates how to communicate those expectations, regularly reinforce them, and effectively hold physicians accountable to them, with the goal of improving morale and engagement.
