Acad Med. 1989 Jan;64(1):45-6. doi: 10.1097/00001888-198901000-00017.


To help prepare residents in preventive medicine and occupational medicine for their future management roles, the University of Arizona College of Medicine incorporated administrative training into many aspects of its residency programs, beginning in 1983. Training focuses on seven skill areas seen as needed to meet the management demands of the physicians' future specialties. The authors discuss the career choices of University of Arizona graduates and advocate long-term administrative training for all specialties.
