Legal Issues Affecting Academic Medical Centers and Other Teaching Institutions 

January 24-25, 2013
Ritz-Carlton Hotel
Washington, DC
Co-sponsored with National Association of College and University Attorneys (NACUA) and Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC)
Huron Consulting Group has provided sponsorship in support of this program.

Program Description
The annual Academic Medical Centers program is designed to address the legal issues unique to teaching hospitals and academic medical centers. This program attracts in-house and outside counsel for the nation's leading teaching hospitals and provides an excellent environment for the sharing of best practices and the exploration of new issues. The upcoming program will have a focus on how AMCs are working more and more with community providers in clinical care, research, and education. The program's expert faculty will also cover fraud and abuse, HIPAA, and GME related issues. We will kick-off the program with a keynote address by Atul Grover, from AAMC, on What the Election Means for Academic Medicine and Teaching Hospitals. Following his keynote will be the Year in Review with Elizabeth Carder-Thompson and then a panel of experts discussing the Future of Medical Education.
