Learning Objectives:
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Discuss and describe successful marketing of a new or existing practice.
  • Describe the latest information on electronic health records and correct coding mistakes made by young physicians
  • Summarize mentorship opportunities and lessons learned by other young physicians

The first ten years of practice bring unique challenges. These challenges are also ever-changing, with the changing healthcare system. For young physicians, it's not only important to keep up with new medical advances, but also to be able to run and market their practice, use new technologies such as social media, and comply with all new regulations. Many also feel the need and desire to give back and continue to advance our great specialty. This session will give young physicians the tools needed to continue to be successful, including marketing, EHR, coding, mentoring, and lessons learned by other young physicians.
