PHYSICIAN CEO 2025 Program (Apply Today!)

 

The PHYSICIAN CEO program is developed by SurgiVision Consultants, Inc. in collaboration with the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, a top-rated business school for executive education.

This program is unique in its focus on practice growth. Other 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 experience to train physicians with essential business skills. The program consists of four 5-day “Modules”. Each module is organized around core topics of interest to physicians across all private practice specialties and a variety of entrepreneurial ventures and is designed to accommodate the physician’s busy schedule.

In-person, live discussions are an essential component of business education. While an online course might seem to be more convenient, experience shows that there is no substitute for live teaching—especially given the high-caliber professors at Kellogg, and the highly qualified participants in this program.

Course structure, cases, assignments, and general focus are directly relevant to running your medical practice. Major emphasis is given to strategy, leadership, negotiations, marketing, operations, finance, accounting, corporate structures, and legal topics, among others. Modules are designed to match the rapid learning pace of physicians and provide optimal exposure across the key functions of a Lifestyle medical practice. The "all-inclusive" program fee covers tuition, books & materials, housing, meals, health club, and activities.

The PHYSICIAN CEO Program is delivered at the James L Allen Center at the Kellogg Executive School of Management on the campus of Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. This is a recognized certificate program at Kellogg Executive School of Management and conveys Alumni Benefits accordingly.

About the RSA Refractive Technicians
We begin a new training outreach for Refractive Technicians.

As we all know this role requires a high level of expertise and experience to master. Every step of the diagnostic exam is critical. The more complete our technicians’ knowledge is, the better able they are to perform accurate diagnostic exams and refractions, make the patient feel at ease, and catch mistakes before they happen.

With the mission of supporting, and training the very best refractive technicians, we have curated a lecture series to be given by technicians, for technicians.

  • March Topic: TBA
  • Date: Wednesday, June 5, 2024
  • Time: 5:00 PM GMT / 1:00 PM ET / 10:00 AM PT
  • Duration: 60 Minute Format

Please arrange your schedule so that you can attend this “LIVE Training Session” This is a great opportunity to invest in their education.

Our All-Star Technician Training Committee Includes:

  • Liz Hogan, BSc, MSc – Wellington Eye Clinic, Dublin, Ireland
  • Cory Pickett, BSN, RN, CRNO, COA – Panhandle Eye Group, Texas, USA

The lecture is FREE for the technicians and staff of an RSA Member. After gauging your feedback from this pilot program, we hope to turn this into a course as well as a certification program for Refractive Technicians.

ABOUT RSA JOURNAL CLUB

These webinars are open to all ophthalmic colleagues – residents, fellows, and surgeons – both RSA members and colleagues. Please feel free to invite your colleagues to join us as your guest. We believe this series provides awareness about cornerstone concepts in refractive surgery. The peer-review literature is replete with content—some relevant, some not so relevant. The purpose of the RSA Journal Club is to highlight “landmark” articles that should be front of mind for every RSA surgeon and to provide a forum to discuss them in detail.

What makes this series so special is that the articles are not only discussed, they are often times presented by the authors themselves, providing a unique insight into the papers.

Journal Article(s) for Discussion on 19 June 2024: TBA
