Frequently Asked Questions

  • I’m busy. Why should I attend a live institute?

    It’s not unusual to hear from attendees that they learned as much from each other as they did in the classroom. These networking opportunities with like-minded physician leaders have led to lifelong collaborations.

  • Will there be an institute near me?

    Live institutes are regularly scheduled in the western United States in Arizona and on the East Coast in Florida. Others land in a variety of destinations, such as Chicago, Washington, D.C or New York City.

  • My organization is interested in exhibiting at an institute. How can we do that?

    The association selectively partners with companies or organizations that will benefit from one-on-one interaction with our members at institutes. We do not host a traditional exhibit hall. Click on the word Partnerships (under Advertising) at the bottom of this page to find out more about our institute partnership and sponsorship opportunities.

  • I’m interested in being a presenter. What should I do?

    The association accepts applications year-round from speakers and presenters who can give health-care specific leadership and medical management seminar sessions. Topics must be specific to physicians’ need for knowledge and skills that can help improve patient care and clinical practice.
