    "Effective teaching encompasses more than just the transmission of subject matter, however. Excellent teaching, first of all, gains the students' attention and convinces them of the importance of what is being taught and learned. It goes on to communicate not only information and concepts but to develop powers of analysis, synthesis, judgment, and evaluation, all in a context of considered values. When teaching has truly succeeded, students leave with an ability to learn, question, and commit on their own."

Applying MBA Knowledge and Skills to Healthcare [Paperback]

Reza Nassab, Vaikunthan Rajaratnam and Michael Loh ,

Foreword by B Sonny BalAssociate Professor, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Missouri, Columbia, MO, USA

IN PRODUCTION - Due to be published May 2011

Clinicians increasingly need a firm grasp of the fundamental principles of business management, finance and related subjects. Even so, business disciplines are still rarely taught during medical training, while busy practices and complicated accounting tasks mean that gaining business acumen 'on the job' is impractical for many. As a result, increasing numbers of clinicians learn the skills they need by taking an MBA (Masters in Business Administration). While an MBA may be the answer for some, the formidable costs and time commitment it demands leave many busy practitioners seeking more accessible options. This book provides a readable, tightly organised alternative - a primer on MBA principles and their practical application. Twelve compact, carefully structured modules cover the entire gamut of a business education, from basic finance and accounting principles, to strategic management methods and leadership theories. Unlike some similar texts, this book is designed to be light in tone, easy to read and digest, and thoroughly practical. Busy clinicians, academic surgeons, administrative physicians and other healthcare professionals will find this an invaluable resource in understanding the core principles of business management. Allied medical professionals, and nurses will also find it useful, as will interview candidates who increasingly face management questions as part of selection processes. 'An invaluable resource in understanding the core principles of business management, and in learning how to apply them. For busy clinicians, the value proposition is enormous in terms of the knowledge gained, versus the amount of reading required to capture what the authors have so capably managed to distill between the covers. The authors have done a remarkable task in capturing the latest concepts and thinking in the business management arena [and] the essence of an entire MBA education, and customise it for healthcare professionals. A delight.' From the Foreword by B Sonny Bal

The current demand of doctors apart from the clinical challenges includes knowledge and skills in efficient management of limited resources. Unfortunately the undergraduate medical education does not provide any form of education or skills in modern management in medicine. The GMC has recently produced this statement as part of good medical practice.
“All practising doctors are responsible for the use of resources; many will also lead teams or be involved in the supervision of colleagues; and most will work in managed systems, whether in the NHS or in the independent, military, prison or other sectors. Doctors have responsibilities to their patients, employers and those who contract their services. This means that doctors are both managers and are managed” Feb 2006 Management for Doctors. GMC booklet.

Currently available MBA degrees for clinicians have been generic business type content and very commercial in nature and has little clinically applicable programs.
This unique program is produced with doctors in mind using an action learning principles and work based learning framework. It provides an opportunity for the doctor to acquire knowledge and skills of a manager in a clinical setting and each module will require the candidate to do reflective learning in their own environment,
