Researching Doctors: The Business of Medicine
David Eberly, Director of Prospect Development
Children's Hospital Trust, Boston
More than ever, the business of medicine is under public scrutiny and financial strain. How much do doctors earn? How do they earn it? What are the differences among specialties and practice types? As medical practice and entrepreneurship merge, how do we understand and evaluate the multiple income streams of many academic physicians including royalties, patents, and fees? What patterns of change are we starting to see in different generations of doctors as they advance in their careers? More broadly, what is the culture of philanthropy among doctors? Where do they give, and how? What is the role of the medical foundation? With so much emphasis on cost savings at all levels of medicine-hospital, insurance company, and individual practitioner-what impact on overall medical philanthropy can we predict? Join David Eberly for an in-depth examination of the medical profession and its practitioners.
