You may remember that blend of excitement and fear as the training wheels on the bicycle were removed. I remember that fleeting moment of achievement as I pedaled on my own until the branches of the rapidly approaching tree limbs came into view; less clear are the seconds that followed!
The ASA Certificate in Business Administration (CBA) program turns 18 this year, and continues to provide useful and pragmatic education for anesthesiologists thinking about a ride on the business bicycle.
Why should you consider enrolling in the CBA program? You’ve made it through medical school and residency; you have acquired all the skills you need. Right? You more than likely have a blind spot – basic business skills! The CBA is intended to help fill this knowledge gap for anesthesiologists like you who are comfortable in clinical practice, but interested in learning more about administration.
