Business Side of Medicine

Business Side of Medicine

May 31-June 1, 2024 | Virtual


The role of business in modern medicine is becoming increasingly significant. This course will tackle issues such as the increasing expenses in healthcare, the management of information, the allocation of resources, and the effective delivery of healthcare.

Whether you seek to establish an optimal practice from the start or need help on enhancing your existing practice, this course will provide you valuable insights, information, and recommendations for navigating the complexities of contemporary medicine.

As surgeons, our goal is to deliver exceptional healthcare to our patients. However, frequently we lack the necessary resources or expertise to effectively negotiate the complexities of physician reimbursement, coding, contract negotiations, or practice optimization. The significance of business in contemporary medicine is growing, necessitating a deepening of our understanding in this domain to guarantee our triumph, the triumph of our practice, and the optimal treatment of our patients. 

The regulations imposed by the government and insurance companies are becoming progressively intricate, and it is important for us to stay abreast of these regulations in order to achieve success in our endeavors. This course aims to offer valuable knowledge to both novice and experienced practitioners, enabling them to comprehend the current payment system for physicians in the field of medicine. By doing so, all participants may fully appreciate the gratification that comes with practicing urogynecology, a specialty that requires extensive training.
