Requirements to Get Job as Medical General Manager
A general manager role in the medical industry is a demanding one, requiring a high level of managerial skills as well as a solid understanding of the operational aspects of medical clinics and hospitals.
Many of those employed in a Medical General Manager job have at least some medical training, but this is not a “must have” requirement. What you do need includes:
- Excellent communication skills
- Analytical and financial management skills
- Ability to set and analyse KPI targets
- Awareness of medical industry, including the roles of the different individuals and teams involved in different areas of healthcare within the organization
- Understanding of the difference between administration and healthcare, and awareness that the objectives of the different departments may not always be in harmony (larger organizations only)
- Ability to assess any given situation and develop plans to achieve the best outcomes for the organization
- Hold meetings and receive feedback from department heads to develop a clear picture of the state of the organization (larger organizations only)
- Ability to delegate responsibility where appropriate
- Oversee hiring and employment termination (smaller organizations only)
- Order supplies and maintain inventory (smaller organizations only)
The reason why some of these skills and responsibilities are only necessary in smaller organizations is because larger organizations such as hospitals will normally have departmental managers to handle these tasks. For example a hospital will normally have a Human Resources Manager, a Finance Manager, and so on.
In larger organizations there can be a distinct rift between administration and medical staff. A good General Manager will try to reduce this rift if possible, but the culture in some establishments is deeply ingrained and so this is quite a difficult goal to achieve.
