Role of the managing physician

The following is a brief summary of the role of a managing physician in a group practice, who is usually elected for a one or two year term, depending on the size of the practice:

  • The basic role is to address issues that arise but do not require the approval of the entire group, or Board. 
  • Be available to make minor day to day decisions (ex. buying a piece of furniture).
  • Reviews and signs all disbursement checks.
  • Be the administrator's direct contact in matters that he or she needs answered in between board or shareholder meetings. 
  • Handles physician to physician issues within the group.
