The Entrepreneurial MD Podcast


Nov 3, 2008

Kenneth (Ken) Cohn MD MBA is no ordinary general surgeon.

This is a man who looked at a layoff as an opportunity to keep his wife happy (smart guy!) by remaining settled in New England, and instead, made lemonade out of the lemons he was handed.

Involuntary unemployment provided him with the chance and time to go back to school to get his MBA at the Tuck Business School at Dartmouth, thus launching a whole new phase of Ken's professional development.

As the founder of Healthcarecollaboration.com and a self-employed consultant who helps hospital administrators and their medical staffs and physician communities get cozy and collaborative, Ken obviously has the patience of a saint (I know, because I have been there and struggled with that). And a delightfully self-deprecating sense of humor to match! He's also a thoughtful blogger.

And to keep his hand in, he maintains a practice as a locum tenens, getting to know many physicians and hospital administrators in the process. Good marketing, don't you think?

Listen here as Ken shares the insights and lessons that becoming an accidental and now very intentional entrepreneurial physician have presented to him.
