Spring Seminar 2020 logo

APRIL 23-24, 2020

16 hours AOA Category 1-A CME credits
plus 1 additional credit hour for completing the outcomes survey

Join us, from your home or office, for a two-day online CME seminar featuring a special wellness program designed specifically for physicians.

In the best of times being a physician can be challenging: increasing regulatory demands and workload, loss of autonomy, decreased reimbursement, and constant pressure to achieve high marks for patient satisfaction. With the coronavirus pandemic, doctors across the nation are facing their greatest challenge ever. Now more than ever, it is vitally important that physicians have all the necessary tools while also taking care of themselves.
