ASRA's Business Leadership Online Courses (BLOC) series provides physicians with a solid foundation of business skills to maximize the effectiveness of their practices.  Combining online lectures presented in real time with a series of asynchronous activities, this intensive training opportunity includes three modules:

  • Negotiation: 4-week course began May 13 
  • Finance: 4-week course began July 15 
  • Human resources: 4-week course began September 16

Participants can earn 10 CME credits for each module for a total of 30 credits upon completion of all three. Training is conducted in collaboration with Lake Forest Graduate School of Management in Chicago, IL.

Here's some initial feedback from the first course:

"It provides a better framework for the tough decisions we face as physicians - physicians that care about process, productivity, efficiency, patient outcomes, and profitability." - Negotiation module participant

"Very useful and practical information. This will help greatly in our negotiations for better retirement plans for my group." - Negotiation module participant

"Physicians especially in this field face challenges of tough schedules - but the asynchronous program was good and reasonable." - Negotiation module participant
