The Lunchtime Physician Entrepreneur


Adapted from the successful interactive audio-visual e-course, The Lunchtime Physician Entrepreneur is a crash course for like-minded physicians who want to make a smooth transition into running their own private practices. After accepting a lower-paying position with a Federally Qualified Health Center in order to give back to her community through the practice of medicine, Dr. Shanicka Scarbrough quickly realized that her time was stretched thin by overcrowded waiting rooms, piles of paperwork, and a mother with early onset dementia. Rather than abandon the profession and the woman who raised her, she decided to strike out on her own. Just three months after handing in her resignation, Dr. Shanicka opened the doors to her own private medical practice.

By encouraging physicians to become their own employers and tailor their private practices to fit their unique interests, this six-step guide will help physicians harness the courage and know-how needed to start their practice and make a living on his or her own terms.
