This research paper reports the findings of the first comprehensive survey of senior executives in Iran’s teaching hospitals. It is based on an analysis identifying the continuing professional development (CPD) needs of the total population of the two senior levels of teaching hospitals management‐presidents of physician‐managers and administrative‐managers. Four key areas of management knowledge were selected as the focus of the need identification: operational; financial; human resource; and organization change. The findings reveal a pent up demand for introductory level, formal knowledge in all four areas of management theory, to complement and extend the practical experience they have acquired in managing the complex environment of teaching hospitals. The paper goes on to propose a curriculum design and overall framework of provision to meet these genuinely felt CPD needs.
