Primary Reasons Providers Fail

1. Assuming expert clinical medical skills are all you need

No matter where you decide to practice, be it in a hospital or a clinic, you need to be prepared to successfully navigate the "Administrative Burden" maze of financial, legal, regulatory, insurance, human resources, and other topics that are essential if you are to protect your own interests, as well as the interests of the patients you serve and the organization in which you work.

2. Burnout

The medical profession is in crisis as 42% of surveyed providers state they are experiencing burnout. Of the providers who said they were burned out, 55% identified "Administrative Burden" as the main source of their frustration leading to burnout. Rx for The Business of Medicine™ teaches the business fundamentals necessary to succeed and avoid burnout.

Course Comments

This Should be Mandatory

Fourth-Year Medical Student

This course feels like it should be mandatory teaching in medical school. Not once in my time during medical school has anyone talked about the business aspect of things in great detail. Usually, you have to continually ask someone and then their answers are vague or insufficient. This course provides a good starting point for understanding how we need to practice medicine both from our hearts but also as a business operation.


Practicing Physician

Excellent overview! These are terms and concepts that are totally foreign to a vast majority of medical students. Super important to know when looking for residency and employment.

See Healthcare in a Different Way

Fourth-Year Medical Student

The Rx for The Business of Medicine helped me see healthcare in a different way. I am more aware of all the other things that go into our profession besides learning medicine. I plan on being proactive with the business side of practicing medicine and educating myself on how to provide the best care safely, effectively and successfully. Being more educated on things other than medicine will help alleviate some stress associated with the profession. I know for myself, I need to become more familiar with the finance side especially with loan payment and investments, Medicare and Medicaid policies, and accounting.

Preventing Physician Burnout

Fourth-Year Medical Student

I think the focus on preventing physician burnout and the strategies implemented to prevent this have been the biggest takeaways for me. Burned-out doctors are more likely to leave practice, which reduces patients’ access to and continuity of care. Burnout can also threaten patient safety and care quality when depersonalization leads to poor interactions with patients and when burned-out physicians suffer from impaired attention, memory, and executive function.


Fourth-Year Medical Student

Rx for The Business of Medicine takes something like medical billing and coding and doesn’t teach you the specific codes, but rather the WHY of medical billing and coding. It may seem uninteresting and one of the least desirable facts to know about medicine, but Dr. Anderson shows WHY you need to do it, how to do it, and keep yourself away from unbearable quarrels with insurance companies. Dr. Anderson will change your perspective so you can tackle these parts of medicine with gratitude rather than resentment.

I Am Grateful

Fourth-Year Medical Student

I just wanted to say how grateful I am that you created this course. The content contained is invaluable to my future in medicine. I have spoken to some of my friends at other medical schools who have been pulled off rotations as well, and they were thoroughly impressed with this course as I describe it to them. I continue to reference the article links. Thanks again!
