Private practice otolaryngology 2018
Much has been written by social media commentators and bloggers who harken the demise of private practice otolaryngology at a rapidly increasing rate.
Private practice otolaryngology is not a dying concept
I am a committed private practice otolaryngologist, and one major theme for my year as AAO-HNS/F President has been to reinforce and reassure our membership that the premise of the “demise of private practice” is a false one.
On private practice
One of the primary goals of the Academy is to provide our members with the tools they need to provide the best patient care. That involves using our traditional areas of expertise—such as advocacy, analysis, education, and quality—to help create practice paradigms in which otolaryngologists can participate and thrive whether they are generalists or specialists in academic, employed, or private practice.
