Hello and welcome to JustAnswer,

happy to answer but what is my 'chosen career or role'. do i write it from my perspective as a physician?

It would actually be a health care administrator?

Expert:  911Doctor replied 5 years ago.
As a hospital administrator there are many opportunities for continuing education. The American College of Health Care administrators sponsors and supports no shortage of online opportunities, and no shortage of local and national conferences.

However, the astute Health Care Administrator has another wealth of educational opportunities within the walls of his hospital.

One of the major criticisms facing some Administrators is a lack of ability to communicate with the physicians on staff at their facilities. An astute health care administrator will become a regular participant at his physician's conferences, and at his nurse's conferences.

Keeping her finger on the pulse of her hospital is best done by becoming a regular face within the halls of his facility. She, by attending provider conferences, has an opportunity to gain in general medical knowledge AND an opportunity to forge a bond of friendship and trust with the skilled providers who keep the institution running.

This 'continuing education' may, in fact, be far more valuable than the online courses and national courses offered by ACHCA, as, if properly done, an administrator can gain an invaluable perspective on what's happening where care is delivered.... in wards, the OR, and the ER of her hospital.
