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.

Excellent!

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.

Why?

“Medical students and Residents I have mentored wished their medical education had included business of medicine courses. Medical students also wished they had received practical tips on getting into a Residency. Rx for The Business of Medicine™ fulfills these and other wishes that will make your life as a practicing physician easier by not having to learn these lessons the hard, frustrating, and expensive way; thus mitigating the potential for burnout."

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 physicians state they are experiencing burnout. Of the physicians 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.

Block One

Fulfillment

There is evidence that students entering medical school have lower burnout, less depression, and higher quality of life than college graduates pursuing other fields; and yet something goes awry. There are also studies that show 75% of medical students are suffering from burnout. Rx for The Business of Medicine™ helps medical students focus on their "why” and respect their self-worth so they find fulfillment instead of stress, anxiety, and burnout. We even provide them with tips on how to knock their residency interview out of the park!

Block Two

Prevail

Studies have found that 55% of Providers experiencing burnout have identified a leading cause of frustration as “Administrative Burden” which includes Business, Legal, Accounting, Regulatory/Compliance, and Billing and Coding challenges for which most Providers are ill-prepared. Rx for The Business of Medicine™ was designed to teach essential business fundamentals to all healthcare professionals so they are empowered to prevail and to mitigate the chances for lawsuits, financial distress, and regulatory/audit liability.

Block Three

Thrive

The best medicine in the world is lost if the Provider leaves medicine or the medical organization fails for lack of business acumen. Rx for The Business of Medicine™ uses real-world experiences to fill business knowledge gaps and empowers all healthcare professionals with the skills necessary to thrive in any practice setting.
