“We are extremely excited by the opportunity to reestablish our partnership with PMI,” said Cort Kirkley, Chief Operating Officer for the MSV. “The quality of the curriculum is an important element in our decision to offer their courses to our members and we are confident PMI meets the needs of our very diverse membership. “
The Virginia faculty team will be led by Lesley Wagner, Practice Advocacy Manager for the MSV. Lesley is a seasoned professional who devotes her efforts and skills toward changing practice paradigms, shaping new market approaches and driving meaningful training for the next generation of medical practice staff in today's ever-evolving landscape.
“I am excited to have the opportunity to bring these classes to the medical practices of Virginia,” said Wagner. “I know the value of these programs first-hand as well as the long-term benefits recognized by students who have successfully completed training. Enhanced knowledge makes these professionals more valuable contributors to the long-term success of the practice.”
The January training calendar will include two classes on the new quality-based measurements known as MACRA. This training will provide up-to-date information on practice participation in 2017 and beyond. The Certified Medical Office Manager (CMOM)® certification course will also debut in January.
