PHYSICIAN CEO® is Proven to Boost Practice Effectiveness
The PHYSICIAN CEO® program turns doctors into executive leaders, through world-class education at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.
Build your business, grow your practice, and develop your business plan while still practicing as a physician.
Understanding how to run a business in medicine will put you at a unique advantage in the future to lead your own hospital, practice, or start a new venture. The PHYSICIAN CEO® program is designed to focus on you and your practice from day one. You will learn how to solve the issues that you are facing you now and get executive-level feedback from top leaders in business education.
This program is unique in its focus on practice growth. Participation is limited to physicians. Most programs train physicians to be managers, to run hospitals and to comply with regulations and billing procedures. The PHYSICIAN CEO® program is different. It is explicitly entrepreneurial and focuses on topics relevant to physician leadership, particularly around private practice and entrepreneurial ventures.
The PHYSICIAN CEO® program provides an intensive, MBA-style education made up of four 5-day “Modules”. Each module covers core topics of interest to physicians across all private practice specialties and a variety of entrepreneurial ventures.
What do you need to know about accounting and office management? Does practice branding matter? What kind of marketing should you be doing to attract the patients you want? The PHYSICIAN CEO® program will cover these topics and much more, leading you through an intensive MBA type program focused on addressing issues facing physician leaders today.
The all-inclusive program fee covers PHYSICIAN CEO® 2025 program tuition, books & materials, housing, meals, and activities.
