In a tough economy and with the continued cuts in Medicare reimbursements, more high-level physicians from virtually all walks of medicine are exploring ways to offer better patient care that is proactive and improves the quality of life.

Physicians aren’t waiting for the axe to fall with the impending 30% plunge in Medicare reimbursements—74% are opting for career changes*, which is fueling the growth of age management medicine, a medical specialty outside the insurance sector, announces Cenegenics® Medical Institute, the global leader in the field.

That is most evident with the 56% increase in physician attendance at the recent Age Management Medicine Group (AMMG) conference, held in Hollywood, Florida, per Cenegenics who is a platinum sponsor of the events. Higher records are expected at the upcoming November AMMG conference in Las Vegas, NV.

“In a tough economy and with the continued cuts in Medicare reimbursements, more high-level physicians from virtually all walks of medicine are exploring ways to offer better patient care that is proactive and improves the quality of life. Age management medicine is a smart solution and can be added to a physician’s current practice—or can become a full-time practice,” Rick Merner said. Merner is AMMG’s Executive Director/Cofounder.

AMMG typically structures its four-day, CME-accredited events with a one-or-two day pre-conference session, followed by a general session. Each session offers presentations by experts in the field, discussing the latest integrative therapies, breakthrough medical strategies and the hottest medical topics to educate and equip physicians.

“Comments from physician attendees are overwhelmingly positive, appreciating the excellent use of literature and evidence-based medicine by our 28 expert presenters. Our recent events covered topics on the forefront of medicine, from telomere science, stem cells, gene therapy and tissue regeneration to sexual health (men and women) inflammation and cancer, the aging heart, neurotransmitters of obesity and much more,”Greg Fillmore said. Fillmore is AMMG’s Conference Chairman/Cofounder.

The next 2011 AMMG conference is scheduled for November 3-6 at the M Resort & Spa in Las Vegas, NV.
