And more importantly “Why SAGEClinician”?
I’m known for teaching clinicians about business – not just starting a practice, but also about the basics of business and how it relates to those of us who are clinicians (Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, Physicians, and others). We’ve had great clinical education, but the business part…um…not so great.
The business aspect of healthcare is critical to all of us being effective clinicians, helping our patients get great outcomes and taking care of our own bottom line. But you know what?
There is so much more to all this!
Hence, SAGEClinician. I started out thinking about SMART clinicians, but we already know we are smart. We can’t do this without a certain level of intelligence, critical thinking, deductive thought process and sleuthing. We also have to be great at persuasion, have an empathic ear and a bit of ESP thrown in.
So what does SAGEClinician have to do with all this. I believe that SAGEClinician is the next evolution in our growth. We know clinic. We know some business. But as they say on great infomercials….Wait, there’s more.
SAGEClinician. What does it mean? There are a lot of words that can describe a sage clinician. I choose 4 specific words: Smart | Astute| Gutsy | Enlightened. Other equally descriptive words include:
Bold, agile, resourceful, sharp, quick, brilliant, brainy, educated, expert, discerning, insightful, intelligent, clever, strategic, sharp, spirited, courageous, determined, genius, innovative, leader, self-care, knowledgable, literate, open-minded, sophisticated, worldly, practical, changeable, flowing, adaptable, experienced, wise, creative, perceptive, and more!
