Introduction

Alone Again, Naturally

February 6, 2018 - 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm (ET)

 

An independent GI group parted ways with their youngest partner who has been the group’s busiest member at the hospital. It wasn’t a bloody breakup, but they do not wish to cover for him since he left the group.  He is now independent, without reliable coverage, but still on the medical staff.  Now what?

Designed to be informative for any medical staff member, Grand Rounds 2018 should be particularly helpful for medical staff leadership:  Medical Staff Officers, members of the Medical Executive Committee, Department Chairs, Chairs of the Credentials and Peer Review Committees, and the Chairs of other key medical staff committees. 

If you have new members in any of these important positions, this is a not-to-be-missed opportunity for direct education that we guarantee will be helpful to them in their new roles.
