Private practice is characterized as:
- Services that require a license to practice
- Assuming responsibility for the care of a patient
- Services submitted for reimbursement under health insurance
- Services that may lead to claims of malpractice
Faculty cannot do work that the University wants to do or should be doing.
When consulting there is no liability coverage from the state.
