September 1998 AAOS Report
Attend AAOS mergers and buyouts course
More than 175 orthopaedic surgeons and practice administrators have
attended the Academy's 1998 practice management course "Options and
Opportunities in Consolidating Markets: Orthopaedic Mergers and Buyouts."
Response from attendees about the course has been very positive. "The course
presents considerable solid, real world information on a very critical
subject," said Paul J. Hirsch, MD, chairman of the Academy's Health Care
Delivery Committee. "The faculty has outstanding experience that works to promote a dynamic exchange of ideas among participants. If you want a better understanding of alternatives in today's rapid consolidation of medical markets, I highly recommend attending the course." Three course dates remain-Oct. 3-4 in Atlanta; Nov. 14-15 in San Francisco; and Dec. 5-6 in Phoenix. Registration costs are $495 for Academy fellows and practice administrators. Practice administrators who attend the course along with an Academy member receive a $100 discount off their registration fee.
