2011 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 ’11 mid-winter meeting, which will be held on December 3 at Birmingham’s Wynfrey Hotel.
1. We will hold our third annual Poster Presentation program for our resident members. The selection of a topic is up to you. We will supply a mounting station for you to use to present your posters. Set up time will be from 8:30 a.m. until 9:30 a.m., and they will be located in the lobby outside the CME meeting rooms. During the lunch and afternoon break, 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.
2. Later, on December 3, from 10:30 a.m. until 3:30 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 contracts; dealing with personnel and employee issues; and other things that will help you.
There is no cost to attend the seminar or to participate in the poster presentations, and we will even provide lunch and refreshment breaks. Please mark your calendar for December 3, 2011, and make plans to be with us. We look forward to seeing you in Birmingham.
