I want to start a practice, where should I start?
Unfortunately, there is no simple answer to this question. No two people bring identical resources, experiences, or skills when they come to the table.
That’s why I suggest you start by reading a few core articles on our blog. It will help to familiarize yourself with the issues involved, what to consider, and what to do next.
Start with the articles below.

How much money do I need to start a Practice?
Again, there is no simple answer here. No two people start their practice with access to identical resources, expertise, and business savvy. But more than that, Clinicians have different ideas about the type of practice they want to start.
Some dream of starting a multi-provider clinic, while others want to go out on their own, alone. Either scenario calls for different levels of startup funds. Again, let me point you to a few articles. It will help you understand the scope of issues to consider when starting a practice.
