Becoming a Physician Entrepreneur

Do you consider yourself a physician entrepreneur? How does one become an entrepreneur? Most medical schools don't teach much about business skills. As a result, medical school graduates know very little about entrepreneurship. Yet there are many young entrepreneurs who are making a tremendous impact in the healthcare industry. For instance, health IT is a budding area that will only grow as more dollars get directed into electronic health records (EHRs) and other health IT initiatives.

MIT recognizes young
entrepreneurs by featuring those who are under the age of 35 in the Technology Review TR35. The categories include: biotech, nanotech, infotech, and energy. That makes sense since MIT is about technology. If you wish to learn more about being an entrepreneur, then you may want to check out the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.
