A practice that presents a compelling opportunity for a buyer is one that maximises the value embedded in the practice and minimises the type of value that is difficult to transfer i.e. the personal goodwill from the particular qualities and experience of an individual doctor.
The Private Practice Marketing Workshop
Marketing communicates your promise – what differentiates yours from every other practice – but it also focuses on the way your practice delivers that promise: branding, generating referrals, the role of education, websites, social media, patient experience management and much more.
Considering Alternatives: Careers as a Physician Executive
Career options beyond fulltime medical or dental practice are rapidly expanding. Physician Executives practice at the intersection of medicine and business – using their clinical knowledge to inform important corporate and commercial decisions.
