Program Overview

Implementation of the Affordable Care Act is expected to expand access to health care to millions of Americans. As a result, health care providers are exploring alternatives to traditional provider models that increase access and decrease costs.  Retail and corporate medicine have gained in popularity in recent years. These models and others rely increasingly on health care professionals other than physicians to deliver care. This year’s Symposium will explore whether the expansion of the scope of medical practice is a viable option for increasing the quality of patient care, addressing the primary care shortage, and decreasing costs.
