Eller College Business of Medicine™

Most physicians have little or no formal business training, resulting is a widely acknowledged gap between the “practice of medicine” and the “business of medicine.” In order to remain on the cutting edge of today’s competitive health care environment, it is essential that physicians acquire a working knowledge of business theory and concepts, and learn how that theory is directly applied to managing his/her business unit more effectively and efficiently. Physicians are expected to be “good doctors,” but they must also be effective managers, able to understand the budgeting process, work effectively within a large organization, motivate and lead a large and diverse staff, and make difficult clinical and nonclinical decisions on a daily basis. A better understanding of, and improved execution of these basic business principles can positively impact the physicians’ practice of medicine and ultimately, improve the quality of patient care.
