CMOG/GFP Virtual Programming: Webinar on Aligning Faculty with Non-Academic Physicians Across One System of Care - December 8

"Emory Healthcare Physician Group Practices" is a case study and success story more than a decade in the making. Emory Healthcare has created a comprehensive, interconnected medical practice that spans the state of Georgia. During this webinar, two leaders from the Emory Healthcare effort will talk about their challenges and successes as they worked to develop this practice plan. Their journey included organic growth and the acquisition of both private practices and whole health systems to create a cohesive group of more than 1,700 medical school faculty members and 380 non-faculty physicians in 280 locations.  

Learning Objectives:

  • Attendees will be able to describe Emory’s strategies and lessons learned.
  • Attendees will be able to identify the cultural and financial implications of large scale growth and integration
