50 Most Influential Physician Executives - About

Welcome to Modern Healthcare's annual ranking of the 50 Most Influential Physician Executives and Leaders. The program honors physicians working in the healthcare industry who are deemed by their peers and an expert panel to be the most influential in terms of demonstrating leadership and impact.

Nominees must currently be working as a physician executive within the healthcare industry.
