Health professionals need emotional and spiritual maturity, expertise in treating people, and business skills. Success in practice is the result of building healthy, positive, long-term relationships with people. This module, originally created for students who have not yet set up their clinics, has proven useful and practical for 20-year veteran practitioners as well. It goes into depth on a step-by-step approach to creating a new practice from scratch, or evaluating an existing practice for missing pieces. Seminar topics include the success mindset, the four keys of business success, practice vision and plan, different practice models, location, insurance, startup capital, buying a practice, accounting, forms, filing, advisors, hiring staff, computer software. You will emerge from this course with the confidence, skills and actionable next steps needed to start or grow a strong healthcare practice.
