Exit Strategies

Some of the biggest dilemmas mobile surgeons face include valuing their practice and deciding on an exit strategy. What are the options? Is your mobile practice worth anything? Is selling to a corporation possible? Is it a realistic scenario for a solo surgeon, as opposed to a multi-surgeon practice? SURGE member Randy Willer and world-famous David McCormick (veterinary appraiser, consultant & broker for Simmons & Associates) will detail our options.

Are You Internet Savvy, or Are You a Digital Dinosaur?

Some SURGE members are digital natives, at ease with social media, apps and technology. Others are digital dinosaurs, seeking ways to use social media, websites, blogs and other digital marvels to improve the way they practice.
