Alabama Academy Annual Student Meeting
2013 Resident Member “Starting Your Practice” Workshop and Poster Presentation
The Alabama Academy of Family Physicians will be hosting two events for our resident members in conjunction with our Life Stages ’13 Fall Forum meeting, which will be help December 14-15 at the Embassy Suites, Hoover, Alabama.
We will hold our fifth annual Poster Presentation program for our resident members on December 14. The selection of the topic is up to you. We will supply a mounting station for you to use to present your posters. Setup time will be from 7:30 until 8:30 a.m., and they will be located in the lobby outside the CME meeting room. During the lunch, we will encourage our attendees to visit the posters and discuss them with you. This is regarded as a scholarly activity by the Residency Review Commission.
Later on December 14, from 8:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m., we will hold our annual “Starting Your Practice” seminar, full of information you need to know before going out on your own to establish your medical practice. We will present such topics as managing your money and basic finance information; selecting the right kind of practice for you (solo, group, employee, etc.); selecting insurance coverage (from medical liability to coverage for your building or employees’ health); avoiding licensure problems with the Board of Medical Examiners; dealing with all kinds of contacts; dealing with personnel and employee issues; and other things that will help you. Following the seminar will be the business meeting with the election of the 2013-2014 officers.
There is no cost to attend the seminar or to participate in the poster presentation, and we will provide lunch and refreshment breaks. Thanks to a grant from the Alabama Family Practice Rural Health Board we are also able to offer 20 complementary hotel rooms for our attendees. These rooms will be given on a first come, first serve basis, so please don’t wait to register. We look forward to seeing you in Birmingham!
