Episode 144 features a Brain Trust with Dr. Tarun Agawal, Dr. Paul Goodman and Dr. Sully Sullivan talking about the future of associateships.

So what happened to all the traditional associateships? You know the ones. They paid pretty good, they had mentorship, they usually led to a buy in of the practice after a period of time. It seems like these opportunities are few and far between. The Brain Trust breaks down the pros and cons of associateships. Why they fail, why they’re getting rare and what potential associates and owner docs can do to make the chances of getting a good one more likely!
