I was just like you, nervous and afraid.
You might be in the same boat I was many years ago.
I was serving in a position of leadership in my group practice. During the meetings, the business consultants would breeze through the financial reports. They would summarize the income statement, mention the balance sheet, and more quickly onto the productivity reports.
I knew something was wrong with that picture. I knew more information was contained within those line items. Yet, I was intimated by them. I was afraid of looking stupid by asking questions. I lived there for a year. Then I was elected to be the president of the group. That’s when I knew I needed more knowledge.
So began to search for resources, books, whatever I could find to help me. I quickly discovered there weren’t great resources out there. I decided my best option was to return to school and earn an MBA. Two years later I graduated with my degree and started on a new path.
My mission and purpose is to help my fellow physicians become stronger leaders through business education. I believe that any physician can have the practice they desire if they possess a fundamental understanding of business principles.
Unfortunately, when I was in medical school, these types of questions were shunned. I was often looked down upon, and the word “greedy” was mentioned sometimes. Yet, I knew, I understood, that profit is a necessity of any organization.
During my MBA studies, I conducted a survey to examine those areas in which many physicians felt they lacked knowledge or skills. The top three areas were financial matters, process improvement, and negotiations. Armed with that data, I began to write my first for my fellow physicians.
In 2017, The Financially Intelligent Physician: What They Didn’t Teach You in Medical School was released. I am happy to say it has helped hundreds of physicians improve their business practices.
"Dr. Norris has been game-changing in my life. As a physician-in-training, there is always a level of uncertainty regarding; what I am going to do after I finish my residency or fellowship? Personally, this was happening to me a few months ago. I was not sure what was the best path for me; joining a private oncology practice, stay in the academics or just affiliate to a big hospital. But recently I started the Financial Intelligent Physician course and my objectives changed completely. After learning the principles and fundaments of finances and accounting, methods to protect a medical practice from fraud I decided to open my own private oncology practice and at this very moment, I am working on that. I am building a team focused on the 4Ps principle. I am confident that with the principles I am learning with Dr. Norris and his accessibility to reach him will guide me through this endeavor. Thank you, D.r Norris, for being my mentor. "
