“The book [Insurance and Risk Planning for Physicians and Advisors] is an excellent primer for physicians of all levels and interests providing important personal and professional advice. It is “must reading” for all medical students who need a fundamental understanding of the current healthcare environment and is e-qually important to the established physician executive looking for a reference on topics like capitation or the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).”

David C. Stockwell; MD and Anthony D. Slonim; MD, MPH
American College of Physician Executives

“All physicians, and their advisors, are well served by reading this book with its step-by-step process for financial success in a complicated business full of pitfalls and misinformation. Simply put, my recommendation is to read Financial Planning for Physicians and Advisors and ‘reap’.”

Frank A. Cappiello
President, McCullough, Andrews & Cappiello, Inc.
Distinguished Visiting Professor of
Loyola University Maryland –
Wall $treet Week with Louis Rukeyser

“This book, Financial Planning for Physicians and Advisors, would make an excellent reference for teaching medical students and residents the basics of monetary management. I highly recommend this book and commend Dr. Marcinko and the Institute of Medical Business Advisors, Inc. on a job well done.

Manuel J. Colón; MD – American College of Physician Executives

“The book [Advanced Business of Medical Practice] has ambitious scope: business plan, practice valuation, ROI, coding, billing, econometrics, cash flow analysis, compliance, technology, and various legal aspects. But Dr. Marcinko and an exceptional array of contributing experts do a remarkable job of exploring each topic with sufficient detail and meaningful examples. In summary, a doctor building a profitable medical practice must read this book and return to it often for reference.”

Dr. Yuval Lirov, New Jersey 

“I could have used a book like this in the past [Advanced Business of Medical Practice, I will certainly refer to it frequently now.”

Carol EH Scott-Conner; MD, PhD, MBA 

“Health economist Dr. David Edward Marcinko, MBA, and his colleagues at the Institute of Medical Business Advisors, Inc., should be complimented for conceiving and completing this laudable project. The Dictionary of Health Insurance and Managed Care lifts the fog of confusion surrounding the most contentious topic in the health care industrial complex today.”

Michael J. Stahl, PhD
Director, Physician Executive MBA Program
William B. Stokely Distinguished Professor of Business
College of Business Administration
University of Tennessee

I would highly recommend the Dictionary of Health Insurance and Managed Care to everyone who has chosen a career in any health care discipline.”

Christy S. Lodwick, MHA – PhD Candidate

“My suggestion is to use the Dictionary of Health Information Technology and Security frequently. You will refer to it daily.”

Richard J. Mata; MD, MS, MS-CIS
Certified Medical Planner™ (Hon)
Chief Medical Information Officer [CMIO]
Assistant Professor Texas State University

“Dr. David Edward Marcinko, Academic Provost for the Institute of Medical Business Advisors, Inc, and a Certified Medical Planner™ should be complimented for conceiving and completing this ambitious project. The Dictionary of Healthcare Economics and Finance spells out the terms of reference and the principle players in the contemporaneous healthcare industrial complex. Having such a compendium readily at hand and sharing it with others, is a way for patients, accountants, financial planners and insurance agents, medical practitioners, nurse managers and healthcare executives to improve economic efficiency and clinical quality. Of course, it may even help restore fiscal enterprise-wide sanity, as well. Simply put, my suggestion is to refer to the Dictionary of Healthcare Economics and Finance frequently, and “reap”.

Thomas E. Getzen, Ph.D.
Executive Director, International Health Economics Association
Professor of Risk, Insurance and Healthcare Management
The Fox School of Business – Temple University
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA

“The Editor-in-Chief [Dr. David E. Marcinko] and his colleagues at the Institute of Medical Advisors, Inc should be complimented for conceiving and completing this vitally important project. There is no question that Healthcare Organizations: Financial Management Strategies will indeed enable us to leverage our cognitive assets and prepare a future generation of leaders capable of tackling the many challenges present in our healthcare economy.”

 David B. Nash; MD, MBA, FACP
Thomas Jefferson Medical College and University

“Medical management is a complex business, with advances in science, technology and consumer awareness often eclipsed by regulation, rights, and financial restrictions. Navigating a course where sound practice management is intertwined with sound financial strategies requires a blueprint designed by subject matter experts. Healthcare Organizations: [Financial Management Strategies] will be that blueprint.”

Richard D. Helppie
Founder Superior Consultant Company [NASD-SUPC]

“I’ve been a longtime admirer of what David Edward Marcinko does with his writing and knowledge of medicine and medical practice. His books provide guidance for physicians, helping them to survive organizationally, administratively, and financially so that they can continue to serve their patients.”

Ahmad Hashem; MD PhD

Surveying the Interstices of Art and Medicine, Death and Culture

[By Ann Miller RN MHA]

Since 2007, Morbid Anatomy has been excavating and celebrating the obscure, the forgotten and the macabre via a blog, lecture series, workshops, parties, and open to the public research library. They are now taking Morbid Anatomy to the next level with the creation of The Morbid Anatomy Museum: a new 4,200 square foot non-profit institution opened in April 2014.

Morbid Anatomy Museum 

The Morbid Anatomy Museum features a much expanded lecture/workshop space, a bar/cafe, a gift shop, an expanded library and permanent collection and temporary exhibition space where they showcase, among other things, the eccentric taxidermy of Walter Potter, the art of death and 17th Century Dutch “artist of death” Frederik Ruysch among others.






Much like this ME-P, Morbid Anatomy will never appeal to a mass market. This, we believe, is part of its charm.
