        About the Webinar

        Planning for physician ownership succession will ensure not only the survivability of the practice, but also continued success and growth.  Strategic planning, careful due diligence of recruitment, and continual process management are hallmarks of successful physician transition.

        Objectives:

        1. Why it is absolutely critical to start planning for practice transition now, even if ownership transition is still years away.
        2. How to start thinking about ownership transition -- key issues and considerations --  common mistakes and misconceptions about practice ownership transition that can quickly derail a smooth ownership transition.
        3. Best practices for partnership structure.
