This 4-hour course will serve as a mini-MBA-style program to provide you with the tools and skills necessary to run a modern medical practice.

PAGS hands-on workshops, general sessions, and the P.E.P practice management program will all take place at the extraordinary Encore at Wynn Las Vegas, where we have secured discount room rates of just $199 a night – with no resort fee – ensuring that you will enjoy a most pleasant, as well as an informative educational experience.
