All students, faculty, and practicing physicians are welcome to attend our inaugural 2016-17 BRI-OSUMC event on cash based medical practices. We welcome Jules Madrigal-Dersch, MD and BRI board member, to speak about her cash based Med-Peds practice in rural Texas. Having this event early in the year may be important in giving our new M1’s a refreshing, new perspective on the broad range of Primary Care practices and encouraging future physicians to look into Family Medicine as a enjoyable career option.
We encourage practicing physicians and other healthcare professionals to attend to get information on how to scale a cash based medical practice model like Dr. Madrigal’s to an urban setting.
Refreshments will be served.
POST-EVENT SUMMARY: 40 students attended. Overall, our event was a success. The presentation Dr. Madrigal gave was exactly what we had in mind. In spite of some technical difficulties, these issues did not really take away from the message we were trying convey.
Most people were receptive to the ideas and especially because she made her lifestyle seem very appealing and her patient population so grateful and well served. Most of the audience had good questions and seemed to benefit greatly from seeing Dr. Madrigal’s perspective. She was receptive to answering many of their questions afterwards.
