Innovation… personal fulfillment… and limitless potential to help people—and prosper.
These are the rewards for physicians who become entrepreneurs and blaze their own trails in business to provide medical products and services—all while creating a balanced personal life that’s fulfilling and adventurous.Unfortunately, many physicians and medical professionals are held back from this personal and professional ideal by a prevailing belief that they are not good business people.Another obstacle? They are afraid to step out of the traditional medical comfort zones of working in hospitals and other institutional settings—whose bureaucracies can limit creativity, prosperity, and impact.
Now Dr. Francisco Arredondo MD MPH is on a mission to show medical professionals how to excel above and beyond traditional constraints—by becoming entrepreneurs.
In this book, MedikalPreneur: The Official Guidebook for Physicians’ Success in Business, Dr. Arredondo shares his experience and expertise to guide health care professionals into the unlimited and fulfilling possibilities of business ownership.
