Physician Dissatisfaction Leads to New Medical Conference
Date:6/22/2009

LAS VEGAS, June 22 /PRNewswire/ -- With changes in the nation's healthcare system looming and overall physician frustration at all-time highs, a new medical conference scheduled for debut at the Wynn Las Vegas this November has a very unique goal: to teach physicians how to break into alternative careers. The Medical Fusion conference (http://www.MedFusionConf.org) is a new medical education event that is tapping into the growing frustration of physicians practicing clinical medicine in the United States. Conference director Dr. Gregory H. Bledsoe, a physician himself, says a conference of this type is unprecedented, "No one could have imagined a conference like this even a few years ago. In the current environment, however, the interest has been unbelievable."

Bledsoe believes the conference seems to have struck a nerve with physicians due to the high physician dissatisfaction with clinical medicine as it is currently practiced in the United States. "It's not that these frustrated physicians hate medicine -- that's a common misconception," says Bledsoe. "It's that they don't have time to practice medicine in the current environment. Physicians these days would love to spend time with patients and treat medical problems, but they end up spending the majority of their time wading through mountains of paperwork, arguing with insurance providers about reimbursement, and worrying about malpractice suits. At the end of the day a typical physician asks, 'why am I doing this to myself?'"

The theme of the Medical Fusion conference, is "Leverage Your Medical Training and Ignite Your Career." "What frustrated physicians find is that there is no roadmap for them to initiate a change," says Bledsoe. "Because of their narrow training, it is much more difficult for a physician to transition out of clinical medicine than an attorney to transition out of law," Bledsoe explains. "We're hoping to provide a resource for physicians who need some direction."

Faculty members for the Medical Fusion conference are leaders in academic medicine or business who want to share their knowledge and experience with interested listeners. "The conference isn't about hurting medicine. It's about helping physicians," says Bledsoe. "Our faculty has been selected not only based on their impeccable credentials, but also because they have a message worth hearing." Confirmed speakers include Dr. Michael VanRooyen, Co-Director of the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative; Dr. Julie Silver, Chief Editor of Books at Harvard Health Publications; medical device inventor Dr. Mark Kroll; best-selling author and "National Geographic Adventure" columnist, Dr. Kenneth Kamler; Dr. Bruce Robertson, venture capitalist and Managing Director at H.I.G. Bioventures; Dr. Joseph Smith, Vice President of Emerging Technologies at Johnson & Johnson; Emmy award-winning medical journalist Dr. Maria Simbra; television writer and producer, Tammy Ader Green; and internet entrepreneur Dr. Mike Woo-Ming.

The Medical Fusion conference is directed by Synaptic Productions, an independent medical education company.
