Dallas, TX., October 29, 2021 – SurgeonMasters CEO Jeffrey M. Smith, MD, FACS, CPC is an invited panelist for the breakout session, Burnout: A Conversation, at the 2021 American Alliance Orthopaedic Executives (AAOE) Annual Meeting. The conversation between Dr. Smith and practice administrator, Olivia Wolf, will take place on Sunday, October 31st at 4:15 PM CT at The Sheraton Dallas.
“I’m thrilled to be back at the AAOE Annual Conference to talk about burnout and physician wellness with orthopaedic practice administrators. System issues are a major driver of burnout in the medical community. Burnout is an accumulative response to negative environmental stimuli, not an individual reaction to a negative event or weakness on the part of the individual.” Jeffrey M. Smith, MD, FACS, CPC
