How Onsite Seminars Work

What You Can Expect

  1. A team of dynamic instructors with extensive real-world experience will come to you, offering the latest ideas, solutions and best practices in numerous aspects of medical management. Their straight-forward approach leads to fresh insights that can make all the difference.
  2. Every organization has issues, including financial stresses, in today’s uncertain economy. Your in-house continuing education program is carefully tailored for your individual needs, structure, and situation. So tell us, what are the stubborn, ongoing problems that have been breeding dissatisfaction and inefficiency in your organization? Let us know!
  3. Programs can be as brief or as extensive as you choose. Your staff members are encouraged to participate in a thorough assessment of problems, and are guided to options and answers for which they’ll take responsibility.
  4. Managers and employees get the high-level practice management training they need all at once, so they know their staff are taking advantage of outstanding custom education. Plus you’ll eliminate the travel expenses of individuals attending out-of-state seminars.
  5. Staff members can then discuss and reinforce what they learned together. Everyone being on the same page makes a huge difference in everyone’s buy-in for impactful and enduring operational improvements.
  6. Participants earn CEU units, and receive a Certificate of Completion, as well as their own notebook packed with timely, useful information and resources.
