What is The Medical Advisory Group?

The Medical Advisory Group is a peer advisory meeting for managers of medical practices (especially for physician-owned practices). This meeting is a resource for continuing education as well as sharing ideas among medical managers. For continuing education, there is a speaker that is typically a subject matter expert in an area in which medical managers would like more information or insight.  The peer advisory portion of the meeting comes through open-table discussion time when participants ask questions and share ideas.
