There are many choices when embarking in private practice, and they deserve careful consideration because they are both fundamental and complex. This chapter describes models of solo practice and group practice. Autonomy, decision making and governance, the practice culture, and the relationship of the clinician to the practice are examined and discussed; they vary depending on the practice model. Different approaches to establishing compensation, benefits, incentives, and equity ownership are described. The chapter highlights the importance of considering the long-term aspects of a practice environment that is aligned with one’s professional development and personal needs so as to create a sense of “fit.”
