Family Medicine: Clock Management

OK, Family Docs, what percentage of the time during your usual office clinical encounter is used to directly relate to the patient?  What should it be according to your dream of the best physician you can be??  What should it be according to your employer if you have one (or two or whatever)?

Direct Primary Care Ohio UnSummit V Feb 18, 2017 Columbus

Direct Primary fans in and around Ohio will be pleased to hear more about the next UnSummit coming up in February on the OU Heritage Medical Campus in (West of) Dublin, Ohio- a Columbus suburb.

Speakers will review the two major training models/schools which are in Kansas and North Carolina.  They will speak about DPC for medical students and residents, and DPC for early career physicians.  We'll discuss mid-career and late career DPC start-ups and transitions.
Ohio DPC physicians will introduce their perspectives from several areas of the state.  Pearls and Pitfalls are always fun, and sometimes worrisome, to discuss, but we'll do it anyway.

New this year will be "Medical Marijuana" in Ohio and DPC.  Also new will be discussion about what to do as a side job or moonlighting if necessary to fund your DPC path.

Favorites that will be presented in update fashion are "DPC for Geezers", "DPC National Online Tour", "My DPC Practice" (panels of physicians).  DPC networking in and around Ohio.  Legislative update.  "Why we don't/do need to regulate and control DPC".  A Townhall session will close out the day.

No CME credit is available for this meaningful day.  More later, like how to register (for a mere $150, less for students and residents) will be in next weeks blog post.
