A lot to learn

The Secret to Recruiting to Rural Healthcare Facilities
Brock Slabach, Senior Vice President Member Services, National Rural Health Association
Cindy Slagle, Business Development Director, Weatherby Healthcare
Rural hospitals and health systems face many challenges that similar healthcare organizations in large metropolitan areas do not, especially when it comes to physician recruitment. Physicians usually prefer to practice in large metro areas, making it difficult for rural hospitals to compete for talented physicians. Brock Slabach with the National Rural Health Association and Cindy Slagle with Weatherby Healthcare will share best practices for rural hospital recruiting.
How Doctors Think: Diagnostic Challenges in the New Era of Health IT
Gurpreet Dhaliwal, MD, Professor of Medicine, University of California San Francisco
Clinicians are spending more time with technology. In this talk, Dr. Dhaliwal will discuss how doctors and other frontline healthcare providers are helped and hindered by healthcare information technology. Through stories, videos, and data he will illustrate how technology has been part of the problem and how it will be part of the solution in the modern healthcare environment.
Dr. Dhaliwal studies how doctors think — how they diagnose, how they make treatment decisions, and how they develop expertise. Considered one of the most skillful diagnosticians and clinician-educators in the U.S. today, Dr. Dhaliwal sees patients and teaches medical students and residents in the emergency department, inpatient wards, and outpatient clinic at the San Francisco VA Medical Center. In 2012, he was profiled in the New York Times article “Could a Computer Outthink This Doctor?” He writes for the Wall Street Journal’s The Experts: Health Care blog.
Dr. Dhaliwal is a member of the UCSF Academy of Medical Educators and the UCSF Department of Medicine Council of Master Clinicians. He has won multiple teaching awards and has published over 80 articles in leading medical journals including the New England Journal of Medicine and the Journal of the American Medical Association. He has been a visiting professor at multiple universities across the U.S. and in China and Japan. He writes and speaks on physician leadership, physician engagement, and the need for physicians to engage in high-value care.
See you in San Diego!
