New topics highlight 2010 Practice Management Symposium

Want to learn how to build a strong base of referrals in your community? Curious about how to negotiate a contract? Need help in deciding which practice offer is right for you?

If you’re a resident asking any of these questions, the 10th Annual Practice Management Symposium for Orthopaedic Residents is made for you. Presented on Tuesday, March 9, 2010, at the AAOS Annual Meeting in New Orleans, the symposium explores new issues, offers exciting new speakers, and gets you involved through a lively question-and-answer session.

You’ll hear from Shepard R. Hurwitz, MD, executive director of the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery (ABOS) on “The ABOS: Resources and Process.” Additional topics include “Evaluating Practice Opportunities/How to Build a Successful Practice,” and “Risk Management.”

This is a rare opportunity to learn firsthand from experts on the legal and business aspects of orthopaedics in today’s challenging healthcare environment. The symposium is free to U.S. orthopaedic residents; register in advance and get free registration to the AAOS 2010 Annual Meeting.
