Professional Development That Helps Reduce Risk
For healthcare professionals, keeping up with the changes and advances in your field is a lifelong challenge. The Doctors Company offers continuing education courses for physicians, dentists, nurses, practice managers, and other staff across a broad range of subjects.
Thanks to our national scope, regional experts, and data-driven insights, we’re uniquely positioned to spot trends early. Our courses incorporate lessons gleaned from our careful analysis of more than 37,000 malpractice claims in a wide variety of specialties and circumstances. We share not only the analysis, but we also integrate our claims data, actual cases, and risk reduction strategies into the curriculum.
Our patient safety risk managers can provide customized on-site courses to address a specific issue or challenge that you’re facing in your practice or group. We can also provide live, online education so you can learn with colleagues. Lastly, our on demand courses are available for members who prefer the convenience of taking courses online and receiving certificates immediately upon completion.
Timely Topics That Help Reduce Risk
Our courses include timely topics that are geared toward helping your practice team understand emerging risks and learn how to mitigate them. Courses in subjects such as cybersecurity, medical error prevention, and HIPAA compliance alert you and your staff to potential liabilities. Other courses focus on specialty areas of practice and offer recommendations to improve patient safety and quality of care.
We invite you to contact us so we can match our educational services to your needs.
