Although it may not be as lucrative as practicing medicine, physician entrepreneurs are finding it rewarding to turn their ideas into reality. Using the skills and knowledge they acquired from their medical training, physicians who start their own business, whether it is to provide a service or create a product, are using their skills – and passion – to become successfully entrepreneurs.
