Join us in beautiful Sunriver to earn CME and enjoy family-friendly activities including skiing/snowboarding at Mt. Bachelor (with OPSO discounted tickets), and ice skating. You won't want to miss this year's event.

Part Time OMM Teaching Opportunity

The FP residency through the Virginia Garcia Clinic in Hillsboro, OR runs a successful OMM didactic and clinic on Thursday afternoons.  We are looking for an additional DO to help with the supervision/teaching of the residents. This would give the residents exposure to different teaching styles and approaches. It would be from 1-5 pm every other Thursday in Hillsboro, OR.

If you have interest in discussing or exploring this opportunity, please email: or call 917 435-4879.

The Medicare Learning Network is designed to offer physician-friendly articles, reference cards, coding charts, updates on new codes, and other useful information on ICD-10 coding. MORE
