MIND AND MEMORY: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Thursday, January 19th, 2012

This FREE program is open to the public as a  community service

Handouts and refreshments will be available.

This program is sponsored by the Nassau Academy of Medicine

Wednesday, April 18, 2012 at 11:00 AM-12:00 Noon

MESF to Launch Education at Sea Program in February

Thursday, September 1st, 2011

A special CME program entitled “Surviving 2012: Key Physician Practice Management Issues” will be offered on a 10 night Caribbean cruise scheduled for Feb 17-27, 2012 from the Port of New York’s Cape Liberty. The program has been scheduled for the Royal Caribbean Lines Explorer of the Seas and is designed specifically for physicians and office managers. Expert faculty will present a 14 hour CME program focused on critical Practice Management issues facing today’s physician community. Topics include:

  • Negotiating Sale of Your Practice
  • Staying Clear of Regulatory Agencies
  • Ways to Reduce Your Med Mal Risk
  • What to Do When the Auditors Arrive
  • Office Legal Issues.
  • Getting Your EHR to Pay Its Way

The specific cruise was selected because of Royal Caribbean Lines reputation for excellence and fact that it was over the President’s week holiday when many children are out of school. (The ship offers great kid-friendly facilities.) In addition, the cruise was in and out of New York harbor so most participants would not have to fly to reach the ship. Parking is available on the pier adjacent to the ship. Medical, Educational and Scientific Foundation (MESF) President Leah McCormack called the program “the first of what we hope to be an ongoing educational series, plus you get to visit some of the great fun spots in the Caribbean while the Northeast is freezing.”

Go to http://www.continuingeducation.net/coursedetails.php?program_number=1110

or call 1-800-422-0711for more information.

* A SPECIAL EVENING PROGRAM *

The Private Practice of Medicine:  Dinosaur or Thoroughbred?

Seismic shifts in the practice environment are occurring rapidly. On an almost daily basis, your Medical Society and its legal counsel are fielding important questions from physicians:

  • Should I remain in private practice?
  • Should I consider selling my practice? If so, what issues should I be aware of, and how do I proceed?
  • If I sell my practice and become employed, what will be different? What, if anything, will remain the same?

On the evening of February 1st, come hear Michael Schoppmann, Esq, Partner, Kern Augustine Conroy & Schoppmann, P.C. speak on these and other critically important and related issues. As many of you already know, Mike is a very engaging speaker and one of the preeminent healthcare lawyers in America.
