Physician Careers: Entrepreneurship - Dr. Joseph Fastow (MD/MBA 8th AMMP Conference)

Here's a video of a presentation given by Dr. Joseph Fastow at the 8th Annual AMMP conference titled, "The Entrepreneur in Medicine." I blogged about his presentation (here) back in April when I was in Boston attending the Association of MD/MBA Programs (AMMP) 8th Annual Conference.

Now, you can view a video of his presentation and slides here (you'll need Microsoft Silverlight to play the video).
