Setting up in private practice course agenda
As you are aware the UK government has indicated that everyone in the UK should avoid non-essential travel and contact and we are following this advice. After careful consideration we have decided to cancel all face to face courses until further notice. When the situation changes we will update our website. In the meantime we are offering this as a virtual course.
Get practical advice on taking the next step in your career as a private practitioner. This course provides an essential grounding in the key aspects of setting up and running a business and the common pitfalls to look out for.
Access a month-long package of virtual support including weekly webinars hosted by business specialists with experience of advising consultants setting up in private practice. Get insights from a doctor working in private practice. And ask questions live or email them between sessions to firstname.lastname@example.org
Each session will be recorded. If you miss a week you will be sent a recording.
