Review:

“Learning to Lead in the Academic Medical Center is enjoyable to read, particularly given the large number of case vignettes and descriptions of Dr. Houpt’s personal experiences as both a chair and a dean. In addition, the entire last section of the book contains cases for discussion, each followed by questions meant to illicit discourse. ... Learning to Lead in the Academic Medical Center is full of valuable pearls for almost all academic physicians.” (Mary Morreale, Academic Psychiatry, Vol. 41, 2017)

“Those serving in senior academic leadership roles in AMCs, those who aspire to be a dean of a medical school, deans at varying stages of their dean maturation, consultants who interface with AMCs, and operational leaders who enter AMCs from business sector leadership positions may find this volume particularly helpful in creating a framework to think through the situations that are not predictable but will definitely surface during their service tenure.” (Patrick O. Smith, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 61 (17), April, 2016)
