Residents & Fellows Track


 Molly B. Kraus, M.D.

Moderator: Molly B. Kraus, M.D.

Learning Objectives:
  1. List differences among various types of anesthesiology practices and how they reflect in employment contracts.
  2. Identify various value delivery strategies that physician anesthesiologists and anesthesiology group practices can implement to improve their practice.
  3. Describe the requirements for accurate billing and coding and apply these concepts.
Session Description:

The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) states that practice management should be taught during anesthesiology residency. Unfortunately, what needs to be taught is loosely defined. Consequently, the amount of practice management education varies by residency program. As an adjunct to practice management education taught in residency, ASA offers a Residents & Fellows Track as part of its annual PRACTICE MANAGEMENT™ conference. This one-day course provides foundational concepts in practice management so attendees can meet and excel at the non-clinical demands unique to starting out in practice.

Who Should Attend:

Anesthesiology fellows and residents (CA2 and CA3)
