A questionnaire containing paired matrices was prepared. The questionnaire was completed by a statistical population of the hospital administrators including the director of the hospital, the director of quality, the human resources director, the nursing office staff (10 people). The criteria were then ranked according to the fuzzy hierarchical analysis method.
Results: The findings of the study showed that the highest knowledge and expertise criterion (weight = 0.25) and the highest communication priority (weight = 0.15) had the lowest priority in the selection and development of clinical management jobs. According to the results of the research, it should be acknowledged that the proposed successor model for clinical management practices in government hospitals of Iran consists of five main effective factors, including knowledge and expertise, personality traits and management skills, experience and communication.
