Private Practice Physicians


  • The MSDC Private Practice Physician (PPP) Section advocates on private practice issues before the District government, holds programs to show best practices in practice management, creates networks among physician practices, and allows members to collaborate on practice resources.
  •  The section is open to physicians in practices not owned by a hospital or private equity firm, or physicians not employed directly or indirectly by a hospital, although any MSDC member can participate in its activities.

Private practice physicians are the backbone of the medical profession. Our newest section offers the opportunity for these members to meet, network, and grow their practices by learning from experts and each other.
