Opening a private practice can be a daunting task and requires a strategic financial, clinical, and marketing approach that differs from an acquisition. This course will review essential steps that need to be taken to build from a foundational mission statement including: identifying a location using geospatial analytics, securing financing through optometry-specific lenders, selecting appropriate diagnostic equipment that will immediately provide an ROI, choosing profitable frame lines that meet your objectives and your patients' needs, and profiting from third party insurances.
