Practice Transitions Seminar – Boca Raton, Florida

This important seminar is designed for the doctor who is contemplating a practice transition.  That could be for (1) the busy doctor looking to take a partner or (2) the senior doctor thinking about retirement and selling his or her practice or (3) the younger doctor contemplating buying a practice or becoming a partner.

Most of the issues (for example, how to value a practice) will be equally relevant whether you are the potential buyer or the potential seller. We will point out the pros and cons of the various issues from each side’s point of view. This is a no-nonsense, intensive 8 hour course.
