Who We Are
We are passionate about providing private practitioners and their teams with time-tested growth solutions, enabling them to unlock their full potential.
Our mission is to transform private practices into purpose-driven, thriving, and profitable businesses by building high-performing teams, creating patient-centric cultures, and incorporating growth strategies. We guide thousands of doctors and office managers on how to significantly and positively impact their own lives, patients, teams, families, and even their communities!
Areas We Help You Have a Greater Impact In
Jay Geier founded Scheduling Institute in 1997, which has since helped more doctors transform their practices into thriving businesses than any other company in the world. Using his more than thirty years of experience running businesses, he’s connected with tens of thousands of professionals in the medical industry to help them transform their private practices into businesses they can keep for a lifetime of revenue or sell for maximum dollar.
Considered the doctor of doctors, he began the Scheduling Institute after surviving cancer himself to make the biggest difference he could possibly make in the lives of doctors―and, thus, their patients―worldwide.
Our team believes in reinvesting and creating impact in our communities. We give and serve as a team and as individuals, but what unites us is our love for helping people in need.
Likewise, we encourage our members to find meaningful ways to give in their own communities. At Scheduling Institute, we believe that real success is more than money or recognition—it’s about making a positive impact.
These are just a few of the ongoing acts of generosity that the Scheduling Institute and our members have completed together.
The difference between a job and a career is impact. And the impact that we create in the world is the foundation of our culture.
What sets us apart is how we go beyond practice growth. Doctors and teams all over the globe are just as passionate as we are about adopting a growth mindset, serving their communities, reaching financial independence, and ultimately, designing a bigger, brighter future for themselves.
