Practice Management Course


The SMFM Practice Management Course will continue the tradition of providing relevant and actionable information to assist in the everyday management of our MFM practices. This year's meeting will take place at The Marquette Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton in Minneapolis, MN, October 5-6.

The presentations at this year’s course are especially relevant, considering the many changes within our current healthcare environment.

Scheduled presentations thus far include:

  • A panel presentation on supporting MFM physicians and practice managers through respective career stages. 
  • Navigating contracts and negotiations
  • Monitoring financial reports & revenue cycle
  • How to effectively advocate for pregnant women as an MFM
  • A joint PM/coding session on advanced practice providers – clinical utilization and billing/coding for services
  • More to come. 


Please join us in Minneapolis in October for another round of highly valuable presentations led by our expert panel of speakers.
