Johns Hopkins Medicine CME: Business Fundamentals Package

(This activity has been approved for 9.0  AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™)


Your greatest challenge in healthcare today is not clinical.  Your greatest challenge is delivery of your clinical skills to your patients in a safe and effective manner at a low cost.  That is a business challenge and the solutions are found in obtaining and applying business skills.  Business training is not a part of traditional medical education curriculum.  The aim of this package is to significantly improve every physician’s, no matter their practice setting,  ability to deliver healthcare to their patients.  This package represents a one stop shop to obtaining the business skills all physicians need to deliver their clinical skills to their patients.  Included are the following courses from the Johns Hopkins Business of Medicine library:

1. Healthcare Financial Statements Understand and Analyze
2. Capital - What Physicians Need To Know About Money
3. Physician Reimbursement and Employment Contracts
4. Healthcare Budgets
5. Leadership and Management for Physicians
6. Negotiation for Physicians
