News from the AGA
AGA Helps Future GIs Prepare
for Successful Careers
Throughout the spring, AGA held five Regional Practice
Skills Workshops across the U.S. – in New York City, Houston, San Diego, Boston, and Philadelphia – to help GI fellows prepare for life after fellowship.
The workshops highlighted various practice options and
addressed topics rarely discussed during fellowship, such
as employment models, partnerships, hospital politics, billing and coding, compliance, contracts, and more.
