Conference Re-cap

Thank you for attending the 2017 PRESENT Podiatric Residency Education Summit Midwest. We hope you enjoyed the Conference as much as we enjoyed having you.

The 13th PRESENT Podiatric Residency Education Summit brought new education programs and career mentorship to Midwest residents this past weekend. Grand Sponsor, 3M, generously contributed to a great experience for 94 residents from 28 residency programs to attend 10 hands-on workshops, 2½ days of lectures, and a custom version of the Weil FABI practice management mentorship experience tailored to the special needs of residents.

New this year was a track on Practice Management led by Lowell Weil Jr, DPM, MBA along with fellow colleagues Matthew Dairman, DPM, Christopher Milkie, DPM and Richard Perez, DPM. Topics included Finding the Right Job, Basics of Medical Billing, Creating Office Efficiency and How to Sell Yourself.

Thank You to our Grand Sponsor
