Society of Physician Entrepreneurs at Health Wildcatters

The Society of Physician Entrepreneurs (Dallas Chapter) had its first meeting at Health Wildcatters. It was well attended by physicians, medical students, technologists, professors, researchers, and friends of Tech Wildcatters.

Dallas has the potential to be the largest chapter of SoPE.

The event was marketed to people with backgrounds in healthcare who are interested in entrepreneurship.


“The chapter and Health Wildcatters are supporting UT Southwestern’s upcoming Healthcare Innovation Symposium,” said Melanie Smith.

The event was sponsored by Health Wildcatters and TriNet.
