ATLANTA — Physicians who want to start their own business without having to get an MBA will find the coaching they need through the first-ever physician entrepreneur’s institute. The “Next Level Physician Entrepreneur’s Institute” is an e-school that provides coaching, curriculum and support to physicians who want to become entrepreneurs.
Launched by Maiysha Clairborne, M.D., integrative family physician, author, speaker and physician business and entrepreneurship coach, The Next Level Physician Entrepreneur’s Institute helps physicians develop, setup and launch their business with specific coaching, curriculum and community support. The institute is designed for physicians who have an idea for a new business or product and need structured coaching, guidance, and support in taking their ideas from inception to manifestation.
“As physicians, we are not taught business or entrepreneurship, we are only taught to be clinicians,” Clairborne said. “I was once that new entrepreneur struggling to find my way in an area I knew nothing about and had to learn on my own.”
Clairborne’s mistakes and failures as a new physician entrepreneur led her to create the institute: “I created this institute so that I can help other physicians create their ideal careers and practices without the pain and struggles I had to endure due to lack of business knowledge, training, and support along the way.”
Clairborne and her team offer several levels of programs from the flagship “Employee to Entrepreneur Business Startup,” to “Setup Accelerator Program,” to the “Next Level Physician Advanced Entrepreneur Fellowship.” In addition to courses, the Next Level Physician Entrepreneur’s Institute offers a directory that helps promote students once they have launched their businesses and a community that empowers them along the way.
