Michael Gross

Integrated Medical Professionals

I am participating because Michael Carter is my friend and he asked me to join his worthy cause. In the past I wasn't up to the task but now I welcome the challenge. I am well aware that I may not get to 1200 but that is part of the allure. My connection to entrepreneurship is that I started my own urology practice in 1988 with 2 patients on my first day of practice we are now 5 physicians and see over 600 patients a week in a medically underserved area of the Bronx. I think of my medical practice as a moral and ethical business where the individual patient comes before profit in the decision making process and the money takes care of itself with this as our reputation. In the complicated filed of medical economics our practice has evolved via horizontal integration, quality improvement and utilization review. This enables us to minimize bad outcomes and aligns us with patient and payer in the marketplace. We are the lowest cost provider (fewer complications) and are uniquely positioned to thrive in the upcoming shared savings medical model that is entering the marketplace in 2017. My workout routine is that I spin 2 days a week. That is the core of my exercise routine is spin as it gives me core which I hate, cardio, and lower body all at the same time. I then do 2 days a week of body weight exercise -push ups, pull ups, chin ups, reverse triceps and shoulders- no weights

The Connecticut Invention Convention (CIC), a 36-year-old, 501c3 nonprofit organization, is the nation’s largest continuously operating program for K-12 student inventors and entrepreneurs.

100% of the proceeds raised by Push For Entrepreneurship are donated to CIC.

CIC’s mission is to teach students creative problem-solving techniques through inventing, innovating, and entrepreneurship, by teachers trained in CIC’s programs. CIC programs have been endorsed by CT’s educational leaders as promoting creativity and critical thinking, and have received prestigious recognition, including trips to the White House Science Fairs.

  1. In Connecticut, more than 17,000 K-12 students in nearly 300 schools annually have CIC classroom-based programs.

  2. Students compete in their schools and winners present their inventions at local and district events and at the state wide convention in May.

  3. Selected state winners advance to the National Invention Convention and Entrepreneurship Expo (NICEE) at the Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation in Dearborn, Michigan, in June.

  4. CIC inventors comprises 50% girls and 26% minority students, with program growth focused in under-served school districts.

  5. CIC inventors pursue entrepreneurship through patenting, investment, and commercialization.
