Do you have questions about private practice? The Community Practice Council (CPC) is here to help. The CPC consists of ACR members in private practice from around the country. They know what it takes to run a successful private practice and want to offer their expertise to rheumatology fellows and ACR members who are interested in private practice, considering a move to private practice or currently in private practice.
Running a private practice isn’t just about patient care. It is running a business and requires attention to building repairs, billing, human resources and everything in between. If you are encountering an issue, it’s likely that one of our CPC volunteers has faced something similar.
For those considering a move to private practice, CPC members are happy to answer questions or concerns. They can share their experiences and offer encouragement as you prepare to chart a new course in your rheumatology career.
If you are a rheumatology fellow, you might wonder what a career in private practice looks like in the increasingly consolidated healthcare sector. CPC members can discuss the pros and cons of private practice. You can learn about the challenges and rewards of running a business and working for yourself instead of working within the confines of a corporate healthcare structure.
To contact the CPC, email [email protected] and we will make sure you are connected with a CPC member who can help.
