Some of the best healthcare startup stories begin with a doctor. Frustrated by an inefficient procedure or lack of a good tool, he devises a solution to bring to the masses.

If it seems like you’ve heard this story more and more recently, it’s not just your imagination. More docs are stepping out of their white coats to back to school to get business degrees, start a company or take on a corporate position. Others are innovating within their hospitals and practices.
