When did the power shift from doctors to administrators?

Power struggle

As a doctor who has worked in a dozen different hospitals over the past decade, I have really enjoyed meeting a broad range of experienced doctors and hearing their perspectives on how the practice of medicine has changed since the 1970s, ’80s and ’90s.

I recall one conversation I had with a fine surgeon not so long ago, who began discussing with me the huge power shift that’s happened from doctors to administrators over the past 20 years.
