Business of Medicine “Pocket MBA”

This activity has been approved for 16.0  AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ 

We all know that business is part of healthcare practice.  We also know we have little formal training in the business of delivering care to patients.  Degree and certificate programs are available but certainly not accessible to the vast majority of us.  To survive and recover from the COVID 19 crisis requires a higher level of skill.  The right knowledge at the right time is the goal of this Pocket MBA program from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. 

This program is designed by physicians, like you, to bridge the knowledge gap.  Johns Hopkins and Essential Seminars for Physicians offer a 16 CME program that delivers relevant, need to know, and use today knowledge.   You may not realize it, but how you perform in leadership and the business side of your practice will characterize your career and may even keep your practice from becoming a COVID 19 casualty. 

Don’t assume you already have the knowledge and skill, “You don’t know what you don’t know.”

Dr. N 4/12/2020   “I am really enjoying the course and already feel like I am learning things to take back to my organization.”
