Are you part of a private practice? The potential for greater pay and higher autonomy make private practice an attractive option for physicians looking to have more control over practicing medicine. It takes the same kind of astute judgement and effective collaboration with colleagues to succeed in an independent setting that it does to successfully care for patients, and the AMA offers the resources and support physicians need to start and sustain success on the path to private practice. The AMA has a variety of resources ranging from workflow and payment processing to health care regulation news.
