May 1998 AAOS Report

Attend new AAOS course on mergers and buyouts

Space is still available to attend "Options and Opportunities in Consolidating Markets: Orthopaedic Mergers and Buyouts," the Academy's new 1998 comprehensive practice management course series. The course takes an indepth look at two of the most prevalent practice directions-merging physician practices and practice "buyouts" by physician practice management groups. "I found the course to be the most comprehensive information source for orthopaedic surgeons available," said Alan H. Morris, MD, chairman, Council on Health Policy and Practice. "The panel members have vast 'real-time experience' in presenting a variety of merger models from different geographic regions. Any orthopaedist or office manager who is contemplating a merger or buyout will benefit greatly from the information I heard presented." Course dates and locations are June 13-14, Arlington, Va.; Sept. 12-13, Orthopaedic Learning Center, Rosemont, Ill.; Oct. 3-4, Atlanta; Nov. 14-15, San Francisco; and Dec. 5-6, Phoenix. Course information is available by contacting the Academy's customer service department, (800) 626-6726; fax-on-demand system, (800) 999-2939, document number 3499; or the home page in the "Medical Education" section.
