About the  New Business of Medicine Series:
The New Business of Medicine Series is an entire curriculum of CME-certified education in the area practice management. Stemming from identified gaps in practice management and related educational needs, the modules focus on how to improve practice with the ultimate goal of improving the delivery of care to patients. Interactive multimedia formats such as in-depth interviews, case studies and debates will be employed to bring this content into focus. Originally developed content from a multidisciplinary team of expert faculty -- physician practitioners and researchers with expertise in such areas as practice management, bioethics, billing and compliance is combined with data from actual practice experience to produce this unique curriculum.
