As a podiatrist, what are your greatest professional stresses?
We’re guessing that if you wrote out a list, a good proportion of the items on it would have nothing to do with medicine, at least not directly. Good medicine is what you trained for! More likely, you’re worried about finances and billing, or compliance regulations, or staffing, or marketing, or some other aspect of managing your practice from a business or legal standpoint.
That’s what we’re here to help you with, and why the AAPPM provides such an enormous benefit for podiatrists across the country. Whatever you struggle with most in terms of managing a successful practice and business, we have been there, we understand what you’re going through, and we’re fully dedicated to your success. Just a few prominent benefits for doctors include:
Access to the best minds in the business. Our regular webinars, e-mails, and conferences are packed with great information from leaders in their field—doctors, marketers, legal experts, and more. Get your questions answered at a seminar or workshop, or take advantage of our free consultation opportunities at our conferences.
Secure access to the greatest information and tools. Our members-only resource center provides valuable tools, forms, documents, and more information on a wide range of practice management matters. This library has been developed over many years by dozens of professionals and is continually refined, providing you with the latest, most effective, and more important information.
Mentorship and fellowship. There’s no competition or ego in the AAPPM—there’s more than enough potential patients for us all to be successful, and we take pride in helping each other get there. Get connected with peers who have faced the same challenges, share knowledge and strategies, and learn from one another!
Unbelievable discounts. AAPPM members enjoy discounts on conference fees (for themselves and their staff), as well as tools and programs from our incredible corporate partners and sponsors. It doesn’t take much to earn back your membership dues many times over with great information and resources you can incorporate into your practice and start making money right away.
Essential training for your staff. The AAPPM isn’t just for doctors! If you want to succeed, you need a well-trained team supporting you. Your staff wants to make you proud and make you money, but you have to invest in them and give them to tools to do it! The AAPPM provides educational resources, opportunities, and training for medical assistants, billers, coders, and even a certification program for executive podiatry office managers. (We’re working on certification programs for coders and medical assistants, too.) How would you like to be able to put running the business in the hands of your manager, with total confidence, while you focus on medicine?
Really, though, it all comes down to this: Whatever your professional struggles and stresses, the programs, resources, and benefits of AAPPM will help you:
- Make more money
- Leave earlier and spend fewer hours in the office worrying about the business
- Spend more of your work time focusing on medicine and providing excellent patient care
- Relieve stress and achieve a happier, healthier lifestyle in and out of the office
Sounds good, doesn’t it? We thought so!
