AUPHA/MGMA Academic Forum

AUPHA and MGMA will be hosting a joint Academic Forum at the 2018 MGMA Annual Conference in Boston, Massachusetts. The Academic Forum, with peer-reviewed papers, will be held on the morning of September 30th from 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM. In addition to MGMA's theme of “People & Possibilities", the Academic Forum will be focused on “The Consumerism of Health Care – Through the Lens of Medical Group Practice and Ambulatory Care" to encourage practitioners and vendors to observe current research that has a practical application to the world of practice management broadly. 

If you are planning to attend MGMA, this is an ideal opportunity to demonstrate you current research or practice related activities. If you can’t attend all of the MGMA Conference, you can still attend and participate in the Joint Academic Forum by registering here.



Call for Abstracts

AUPHA is calling for abstracts of papers to be presented in conjunction with the 2018 MGMA Annual Conference, scheduled to be held in Boston, Massachusetts. This Call for Abstracts is focused on research that would be of interest to the practice community as well as to academic programs. The theme this year will be “The Consumerism of Health Care – Through the Lens of Medical Group Practice and Ambulatory Care.” We expect to have a set of student speakers (3-4) and a set of faculty and/or practitioner speakers (4-5). The intent of the Academic Forum is to encourage practitioners and vendors to observe current research that has a practical application to the world of practice management broadly. The theme for the MGMA Annual Conference is “People & Possibilities.” Linking to that topic would be a plus. Please review the full Call for Abstracts to see details on required information and the submission process.
