TGH Physician Business Development | Tampa General Hospital

TGH Physician Business Development

TGH physician liaisons work to advance relationships with physicians practicing at TGH and those that may refer to our associated programs. Physician liaisons work directly for senior management as a communicator for our staff physicians and work with private-practice physicians addressing questions and concerns with referrals to Tampa General Hospital. The physician liaisons also coordinate CME presentation opportunities for both TGH and private-practice physicians. Physician liaisons do NOT recruit physicians or handle patient questions. Patients seeking a physician can locate one via our PhysicianFinder service. Please see below for commonly requested forms.
