Attending Annual Meetings - Life improvement strategies for the surgeon that wants more ... in 10 minutes - Episode 6

Pump the brakes on your week and take 10 minutes to make your life as a surgeon just a little better…

This week on the Mini-Podcast we are discussing attending annual meetings after the AAOS last week. 

How do you get the most out of attending annual meetings and conferences?

By doing the following:

  • Pre-op, the pro-active planning phase: identify the education events and meetings that are important to you, and get those onto your schedule. Consider scheduling time for networking and physical activity. 

  • Inter-op, the operating plan during the meeting: follow through on the pre-op plan, but be able to adjust and remain flexible.

  • Post-op, the post-meeting debrief: analyze the meeting and identify what went well and what could go better - how you can improve for next year?

Most importantly, do it YOUR way!

Attending annual meetings is a perfect example of how surgeons can improve their effectiveness inside and outside of the OR.
