Could your practice use more clinical revenue? Do you need to add providers to meet patient demand? Are you cramped for clinic space? Do your faculty need more flexible schedules? Do your faculty want more clinic staff? Do your administrators disagree?
Many faculty and resident practices are hampered by lack of resources. Faculty academic work and irregular resident schedules lead to inefficiencies in clinic and staff scheduling. Clinic administrators find it hard to justify additional resources, leading to a negative spiral. We present a practical solution that aligns faculty and resident clinic time to maximize resource utilization. By meeting administrators half-way, we open avenues for acquisition of new resources. We also open new schedule options to improve faculty satisfaction.
