Area(s) of Interest: Physician Workforce
To grow and diversify the physician workforce, Physicians for a Healthy California (PHC), the Butte-Glenn Medical Society (BGMS) Residency Task Force and Paradise Medical Group have launched a free webinar series — “A Primer on Designing GME in Rural Clinical Facilities”— to offer innovative technical advice and solutions to meet rural California’s critical access to care needs.
Over the course of the series, physicians, practice managers and providers can expect to learn the foundational elements to design medical residency programs, as well as how to best position your clinical facility for success as a rotational site, continuity clinic, consortium member or part of an expanded residency.
The next installment — Expand or Create New? That Is the Question — will be Thursday, January 28, 2021, at 12:15 p.m.
This webinar will provide an overview of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education’s (ACGME) geographical limitations and strategies to determine if expansion, creation or consortium is the best route to grow the local physician workforce.
Each one-hour virtual workshop will be presented by Kiki Nocella, Ph.D., MHA, and director at Wipfli LLP, a nationally renowned accounting and business consulting firm – unless otherwise noted. Nocella is a passionate advocate for GME and rural health care, and she has decades of experience, including a recent Psychiatry Residency Feasibility Study for Butte County and BGMS in July 2020.
