Physician dissatisfaction and burnout with the practice of medicine increase yearly and are exacerbated by the rapid changes in practice structures and demands. No longer is care largely delivered by solo and small physician practices. Instead, hospitals and large practices managed by practice management companies employ physicians and control their delivery of care to patients.

This presentation will examine and compare the legal, economic and business considerations of practicing in solo, small, large and hospital practice settings, including the advantages, disadvantages, risks and rewards of each.

Attendees should have a better understanding of their practice options, the benefits and risks of each, and what to expect if they want to change the environment in which they practice.

Light appetizers and refreshments will be served, along with a wine social and networking opportunities. Q&A will follow the presentation.
