2015 AUPN FALL CHAIRS SESSION
(Held in conjunction with ANA Annual Meeting)
One often touted response to increasing patient demand for neurology services is for departments to hire mid-level providers as ‘physician extenders’. Dr. Gretchen Tietjen (University of Toledo) and Dr. David Good (Penn State) will present different models for the use of mid-levels, and discuss the pros and cons of ‘physician extenders’ in an academic practice environment. The session will include ample time for open discussion and sharing of experience from all participants.
Gretchen E. Tietjen, MD; University of Toledo
David C. Good, MD; Pennsylvania State University
