Does your specialty have an association just for practice administrators and managers? Specialty practice management associations like the AOA (for ENT administrators), ADAM (for dermatology managers), and others are some of the most lively and valuable networking and education groups around. If you haven’t looked into whether your specialty has a practice management association, it’s definitely worth your while to investigate. Not only do these groups offer the chance to network with other managers in your specialty (who understands your world better than someone else in the same role?), they often have other benefits to help you succeed in your career, such as:

  • Benchmarking and compensation surveys
  • Discounts on products and services
  • Specialty focused coding help
  • Annual conferences and regional meetings
  • Online education, webinars, and certification programs for skill-building
  • Job boards

To save you the time of investigating, here are some of the specialty focused administrator and manager groups that we’re aware of.  (If you’re a member or representative of a specialty practice management group we’ve omitted here, please contact us so we can add your group to our list.)
