Chapter 14: Comments on Leadership
Dr. Balch begins by talking about his scope of responsibilities while he was VP of Hospitals and Clinics and then EVP of Medical Affairs. He then explains that he took on these roles out of loyalty to Charles LeMaistre and to MD Anderson, though his "core values" lie in teaching and clinical work, not in administration. He talks about the need for physicians to have leadership training and the perspective they bring to administration. He also comments that leadership training can prepare researchers to lead team scientific efforts.
