Developing a Successful and Profitable Group Practice

Presented by Joe Bavonese, PhD on 09-17-2018 at 9 a.m. Pacific (noon Eastern) to 10:30 a.m. Pacific (1:30 p.m.. Eastern)

Many private practitioners have found that a full solo practice may not generate enough income for them to live the lifestyle of their dreams – such as saving for retirement, paying for college education for their children, and going on vacations. Some have started group practices, only to find they are working more hours and generating less take-home income. When done correctly, however, group practice can help owners serve thousands of people in their community, fulfill all of their income needs, and provide the freedom to create the lifestyle they most prefer.

In this 90-minute marketing webinar, Dr. Joe Bavonese will discuss the most common mistakes group practice leaders make, and the key principles necessary to transform those mistakes into a smooth-running, profitable operation. Dr. Bavonese will draw from his experience running a profitable a group psychotherapy practice since 2000 which now employs 26 therapists in three locations and coaching hundreds of group practice owners. 

This marketing webinar is designed to help clinicians:

  1.   Assess the pros, cons, benefits, and risks of starting a group practice.
  2.   Select and hire the right associates for one's group practice.
  3.   Compile the crucial metrics that must be tracked in a profitable group practice.
  4.   Compare the benefits of having independent contractors or employees for clinical staff.
  5.   Create the best pay structure for group practice associates.
