In Reply We appreciate the comments made by Dr Meyers1 regarding the integration of business education into residency program curricula. As we all know, rising health care costs, decreasing reimbursement rates, and changes in American health care reform are forcing physicians to become more business-minded.2 However, a significant percentage of physicians indicate that their training did a fair or poor job of preparing them to manage the business aspects of medicine, which suggests that it would be useful for educators to reexamine residency training education to ensure that physicians are prepared for the practice environment.3
