Why Beyond the Exam Room? Because...

 

We believe that with knowledge, all physicians can ultimately lead the lives they want to lead.

We know that in many instances that we don't know what we don't know.

We know that by being transparent about our own decisions, that younger generations of physicians can be empowered.

We believe in the power of collaboration, mentoring and education.

We can be the agents of change for this and future generations by shaping the decisions that affect our colleagues, our patients and our families, but we must have the knowledge, tools and skills in order to do so, either in our practices, our hospitals or legislatively, no matter our practice type or specialty.  

We build and develop 21st Century Physicians!

BTER Culture

We know that, in many instances, we don't know what we don't know.

We believe that with right knowledge and tools, all physicians can ultimately lead the lives they want to lead.

We know that by being transparent about our own decisions and sharing our missteps, that younger generations of physicians can be empowered.

At Beyond the Exam Room (BTER), we believe that with the right tools, easy access to education on the business of medicine, and support from professional peers, resources and experts, physicians can embrace a BTER and more fulfilling work/life outcome.
