This year’s NCMS Annual Meeting will be held the weekend of October 26-27, 2012 at the Raleigh Marriott City Center in downtown Raleigh. The theme of the meeting is “Leadership in Medicine: Emerging Issues in Healthcare.”
The meeting has undergone a few modifications since last year. Those changes include shortening the meeting to take place over two days instead of three, holding a brief HOD meeting on Friday to condense business, abbreviating policy decisions-making on Saturday, and conducting HOD business and debate online prior to these sessions.
There also will be two new sessions that will focus on the many issues impacting physicians today. One session will examine and discuss how to conquer prescription drug abuse, which is becoming increasingly more dangerous. Another session will focus on accountable care models and how they will influence the future of medicine.
The NCMS will inform its members when registration for the meeting is available. Until then, more information about the 2012 NCMS Annual Meeting can be found here.
