Over the weekend, I had a great time at the 9th Annual MD/MBA Conference at Texas Tech. I enjoyed all the conversations that I had with medical students and I enjoyed the presentations.
On Saturday, Mark Boswell, MD, MBA, Professor and Chair, Department of Anesthesiology at the University of Louisville School of Medicine, spoke about the evolving business of medicine. He reminded MD/MBA students that they will face challenges in the field of medicine but they will also have opportunities to use their MBA skills as they get involved in things like: operational assessment of charges and collections, practice benchmarking, quality measures, contracts and negotiating, and financial statements.
