In addition to the above listed lecture schedule we have implemented the Business Practice Management Series.  This series is broken down into six categories relating to Medical Models, Life Satisfaction, Leadership Skills, Value in Medicine, Orthopaedic Leadership.  It requires the fellows to meet with each of the surgeons listed below one time in a casual setting to enhance their practice as they start their career as a Trauma Surgeon.

The goal of the Hospital Practice Meetings is to begin familiarization with new expectations placed on providers to take citizenship and leadership responsibility within the world of healthcare, and to recognize the pivotal role for physicians in this new era.
