The Corporate Practice of Medicine has been around Texas for many decades. It is one of the most confusing areas of law when it comes to hospitals, physician groups, doctors and just about anyone related to the practice of law. Many have attempted to explain the corporate practice of medicine but still those of us that have been around docs and their practices still don’t understand how it all works.

Below you will find a link to the article. I hope that those of you that understand it much better than me can make a diagram, powerpoint, whatever to help us all understand.
