Program directors and academic department chairs recognize and understand the expanded scope of practice and responsibility of physician anesthesiologists in 2016. Not only are we expected to provide great clinical care to our patients, the medical specialty of anesthesiology is now demanding an escalated commitment to professional advocacy and practice management. We are asked to fill leadership roles inside and outside the O.R. Health plans, hospital systems and quality management organizations require physicians to answer this call, and physician anesthesiologists are stepping forward to lead.
Anesthesiologists are required by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) to receive practice management coursework during their residency education. There are many opportunities to gain this education and experience, but the greatest opportunity is the resident physician track at the PRACTICE MANAGEMENT conference in Grapevine, Texas, from January 27-29, 2017. The subject matter generally includes foundational topics in practice management, such as employment contracts, practice types and differences, value delivery strategies, and billing and coding. The programming incorporates lectures, discussion tables, and individual advice and feedback on curriculum vitae review, and navigating the anesthesiology job market.
