Don’t miss the annual Residents Day and hear from experienced foot and ankle surgeons with tips from finishing residency strong to transitioning to a successful practice. The day starts with topics such as understanding the ins and outs of CPME’s 320 Standards; learning skills for conflict resolution and advice on dealing with issues of harassment; and insight on how to establish work/life balance. We’ll finish the day with tools to help with your post-residency life, such as how to promote yourself properly; the importance of proper documentation and informed consent; and advice on deciding between heading toward a fellowship, or moving straight into practice, and how to find a job. 

Continue your afternoon of resident learning by attending the Coding Fundamentals course designed for residents and new practitioners to learn the foundation of the coding and billing process from expert colleagues before taking the full ACFAS Coding and Billing for the Foot and Ankle course. Bundle pricing is available for both courses. 

Breakfast, a refreshment break and networking lunch are included with your registration fee for Residents Day. Take control of this important step in your career – register today for both programs.
