The journey to becoming a physician is challenging, but it is also rewarding. Throughout the years of study, you learn a lot, and by the end of your studies, you may feel prepared to start a new position in a hospital or a private practice. However, there is a big difference between what you learn in school and what you are actually faced with when you work. So, in this episode, we’re revisiting a conversation I had with Dr. Nirmala Abraham that illustrates the importance of having a basic understanding of business and getting real-world experience as you begin your career as a physician.
Listen in as Dr. Abraham explains the difference between an office-based practice and/or surgery center, as well as how to start a hospital-based outpatient department (HOPD). You will learn the benefit of thinking outside the box when starting a practice, why knowing the community you will be working in is key, and Dr. Abraham’s advice for those facing challenges as they build their practice.
