Are you a physician looking to enhance your leadership skills and create a thriving practice environment?

The SVMIC Shield Summit is your opportunity to supercharge your skills and enhance your knowledge. At our forum you will have the chance to network, collaborate and exchange ideas with colleagues who understand the unique challenges of medical practice. Experienced physicians will share their wisdom on navigating the complex landscape of medicine, providing an opportunity to hear the secrets to their success and the landmines to avoid.

You will hear from SVMIC’s practice management experts on best practices regarding key operational issues to make informed decisions and know whether your practice is running at its best. We will address what physicians need to know about practice finances, compliance and human resources.

Being a physician is not just about patients and documentation. It is a balancing act of so much more. Several of the sessions are designed with spouses and significant others in mind to provide insight into the life of a physician, how to manage work-life balance for both parties as well as what to expect if you are ever sued.

Topped off with a special event for everyone, it promises to be an exciting and educational event. Mark your calendar now and register today! We look forward to seeing you in October.
