Doctors need some training to become experienced entrepreneurs. They can't do it all on their own.
They don't want to teach doctors these practices because they don't want them to leave their job.
Universities should add some marketing and entrepreneurial classes to help doctors know what it takes to succeed in other areas. I know several doctors that have complained about this issue.
No, we need more doctors in hospitals.
Couldn't be more true. Medical expertise doesn't substitute for business expertise and no business (i.e., a medical practice) can survive much less flourish without entrepreneurship. A necessary ingredient. Everybody talks about 'burnout' like it's a disease but it's just the natural outcome of trying to have your business/career work without the necessary resources. Medical schools train doctors, but leave physicians to fend for themselves to succeed at business, which you MUST do if your practice is going to survive. I have countless friends and colleagues who were GREAT doctors but lost their practices because of this. Or, they became employees with little of no say. That in itself killed their own integrity.
