I am skeptical that the American government is capable of reaching a perfect solution for healthcare in the immediate future. While I would love just as much as the next person for the government to quickly solve the healthcare problem, in the meantime, I believe that the American people have an equal responsibility in finding a solution for healthcare.

All are welcome and encouraged to attend this talk with Dr. Matthew Davis, an orthopedic surgeon who runs a price-transparent private practice in Birmingham, Alabama. Dr. Davis is affiliated with St. Vincent’s Birmingham and received his medical degree from University of Texas Southwestern Medical School. Dr. Davis has been in practice for 16 years and will deliver remarks about his journey as a medical doctor in private practice.
Dr. Davis loves what he does every day, because it allows him to be hands-on, solve problems, and build great relationships with his patients. He enjoys being able to give patients answers, resolve their ailments, and put them on a track toward comfort and mobility. He has 10 years of experience working as a board-certified orthopedic surgeon, helping people by doing everything from ACL repairs to managing osteoarthritis.
Come find out about Dr. Davis’s reflections on the changing nature of medical care delivery and how his system has been phenomenally successful for both himself and for his patients.

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.

The SUNY Downstate-Benjamin Rush Institute (BRI) chapter welcomes you to find out about our organization and get involved! BRI’s purpose is to fully unleash the power of medicine to maximize human health and well-being. We do this by holding events during the academic year: debates, journal club meetings, lunch lectures, movie screenings—(yes, we always serve food!) to help spread the exchange of ideas about healthcare innovation, improvements in healthcare policy, and simply networking as caring medical students.
We look forward to meeting you.
