You're a doctor and you know a lot about medicine. But do you know a lot about the real world? Doctors learn a lot in medical school, but not enough. Only rarely will a course teach practical, useful, or pragmatic information to help with the myriad decisions that arise in day-to-day life. Dr. Harbin wrote this book to fill the gap: to help doctors deal with the business aspects of medicine, help doctors in training learn how to evaluate opportunities for the future, and assist practicing doctors in dealing with the questions arising day-to-day and when planning for the future.
"Excellent advice for all stages of a career in medicine. I truly wish this had been available to me when I finished training."
DAVID A. DURFEE, M.D., RENOWNED PRACTICE MANAGEMENT EXPERT.
"Dr. Harbin provides a practical assessment of the business issues facing physicians at every stage in their career. This is a 'must read' filled with thousands of pearls."
BRUCE MALLER, PRESIDENT, BSM CONSULTING
"In this evolving healthcare environment, it's not enough to be a healer. Physicians must know the business aspects of medicine as well."

"Dr Harbin's book is a must read for this day in age when medicine so closely intercepts with the business world. In our dynamic environment of health care reform, Dr. Harbin has carefully crafted a unique perspective for the ophthalmologist to raise awareness about business skills and how to succeed in our profession."
