Private Practices

AMA Private Practice Simple Solutions


AMA Private Practice Simple Solutions are free, open access rapid learning cycles designed to provide opportunities to implement actionable changes that can immediately increase efficiency in private practices.

Each eight-week Private Practice Simple Solutions learning collaborative addresses one topic area important to private practices and begins with a webinar of pre-recorded content presented by subject matter experts. Following the kick-off webinar, an asynchronous discussion board offers weekly prompts for participants that encourage interaction with peers and questions for the experts to address. Midway through the learning collaborative, participants attend a live webinar for a moderated Q&A on the topic that will inform the direction of the discussion prompts for the remainder of the session.

Running concurrently to the releases of the pre-recorded webinars will be a discussion board offering opportunities to interact with fellow cohort members and submit questions to the subject matter experts who oversee the sessions. Post-session surveys will measure the relevance of the topic, adoption of content and impact of the sessions. The surveys will also allow participants to suggest topics to be covered in future sessions.

Keep your practice running

The AMA is fighting to keep private practice a viable option for physicians. We're working to remove unnecessary burdens so physicians can reclaim the time they need to focus on patients.
