Physicians and Physician Organizations Law Institute 

February 11-12, 2013
JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa
Phoenix, AZ
HORNE LLP has provided sponsorship in support of this program.

Program Description
Sessions at the Physicians Law Institute will provide a focused analysis of the legal challenges faced by physicians and their counsel. In-depth breakout sessions will cover topics, such as, practice acquisition and employment strategies, marketing compliance, fair market value, physician compensation, and joint ventures.  

Attendees can register for just one of the programs or add-on the Hospitals and Health Systems Law Institute and attend three days of programming (February 11-13). The Physicians and Hospitals Law Institutes provide in-house and outside counsel with the latest information needed to advise clients in these two segments of the healthcare industry. The programs are scheduled so that you can attend either the Physicians program or the Hospitals program if your practice focuses on a particular provider or you can register for both for a more comprehensive curriculum that will prepare you to address legal issues facing both segments and gain a better understanding of their distinct legal challenges.
