Small Business Development Center Health Care Practice Program Manager Mario Iezzoni co-authors “The Business Side of Health Care Practice: Retooling Graduate Medical Students through Medical School Curriculum Enhancements” in the Journal of Medical Practice Management with USF’s Nagwa El-Badri, MD, Ph.D, Director of Women’s Health Graduate and Undergraduate Programs.

The article outlines:
- Course content development for universities and medical schools
- Physician return on investments and career tracks
- Consumer driven healthcare
