Branch in focus: Entrepreneurship in Medicine

Doctors and medical students often ask me about pursuing a career as a Doctorpreneur.

Here’s my advice:

  1. Medical college and residency won’t teach you about entrepreneurship. They focus on clinical care and research, not innovation. If you’re interested in entrepreneurship, you’ll need to seek out other learning opportunities because medicine tends to value conformity over creativity.
  2. Start by becoming a doctor first. Finish your residency and gain clinical experience. This will help you understand the healthcare system and identify opportunities. Read up on business topics, connect with local resources and mentors, and consider taking a gap year to explore entrepreneurial endeavors.
  3. Don’t wait to pursue entrepreneurship after becoming a doctor. Start developing an entrepreneurial mindset while in medical school or during residency by learning about business in your free time.
  4. Doctorpreneurship involves creating value through innovation in healthcare. Start small and focus on addressing specific customer needs. Be a problem seeker, not just a problem solver.
  5. Your skills as a doctor won’t automatically translate to success in business. Seek education, build networks, and surround yourself with mentors who can help fill in your knowledge gaps.
  6. Trust your instincts when deciding how involved you want to be in entrepreneurship. Consider serving on advisory boards of start-ups to gain experience.
  7. Recognize that being a good doctor doesn’t necessarily make you a good entrepreneur. Be open to learning and seeking advice from those with business expertise.
  8. Entrepreneurship isn’t for everyone. If you don’t have the right mindset, it’s okay to pursue other paths.
  9. Failure is a part of entrepreneurship. Learn from your mistakes and keep pushing forward.
  10. Look beyond the medical field for inspiration and ideas. Attend events outside of healthcare to broaden your perspective. Don’t be afraid to borrow successful ideas from other industries and adapt them to healthcare.
  11. Stay personally invested in your ventures, but don’t take setbacks personally.
  12. Consider your residency choice carefully if you’re interested in entrepreneurship.
  13. Understanding the business side of medicine is important for all healthcare professionals.
  14. Medical students with entrepreneurial aspirations should seek out relevant advice and opportunities.
  15. Take control of your finances and always have a backup plan. We call it the Multiple Sources of Income (MSI) plan.

Remember, it’s okay to take a non-traditional path in your career, and don’t let the demands and expectations of society deter you from pursuing your entrepreneurial goals.​
