Spring CME Seminar

A successful career in family medicine requires more than patient care. Modern physicians – from solo, independently owned clinics to large health system employees and everything in between – must also understand and effectively manage the intersection of the clinical and business aspects of practice.

The two-day Spring CME Seminar offers professional development content specifically designed to help family doctors thrive financially in employed or independent practice environments.

Choose from a Friday afternoon Knowledge Self-Assessment or a full Saturday CME* agenda on a variety of topics and speakers, or both!

*Application for CME credit has been filed with the American Academy of Family Physicians. Determination of credit is pending.
