Dr. Peter Angood is president and chief executive officer of the American Association for Physician Leadership®, the world’s oldest and largest professional association solely dedicated to physician-led, inter-professional leadership. In that role since 2012, he has continuously promoted the charge that “at some level, all physicians are leaders.”

Including chapters on wellness and burnout, patient safety, lifelong learning and the necessary personal and professional competencies for physician leaders, Dr. Angood’s commentaries are uniquely astute and bold.

He asserts that physicians remain the most trusted and dominant conduit for care and decision-making within the multidisciplinary sphere of healthcare. With increasing demands for quality care and patient satisfaction, the physician leader is well-positioned and deserves an equitable say in shaping the future of the healthcare industry.
