Sneak Peek of IPED’s January Meeting


It’s true we’re barely past Halloween and Thanksgiving hasn’t arrived but here at the Institute for Podiatric Excellence and Development (IPED) we’re already planning for the New Year with our Winter Focus Retreat: What’s Next? The meeting will take place on January 5th and 6th in Florida. Here’s a first look at what will be offered so you can make plans now to start 2018 off on the right foot.

Hot Topics

The focus of the January meeting will be on reimagining the future of podiatry. A few of the key areas we’ll be focusing on are:

  • Private Equity Practice Roll Ups
  • New Technology and Treatment Modalities
  • Acquisitions and Life After

We’ll offer breakout sessions, workshops, panel discussions and round tables on topics that matter most to you. As always, our primary goal is to provide our members with scientific and improved patient outcome based information, compliance and reform updates and practice management tools that are essential for succeeding in the ever changing world of healthcare. You’ll also have an opportunity to network with colleagues coming from varied settings and levels of experience including students, new practitioners and podiatrists with years of experience. Meet and share ideas face to face with others who are facing the same challenges as you.

The Details

In addition to all the benefits of the meeting, our 2018 Winter Focus Retreat will be held in sunny Florida at the Lago Mar Resort and Club in Ft. Lauderdale. Lago Mar features 500 feet of pristine beach and a secluded 10 acres of beauty and luxury and yet it is conveniently located to Ft. Lauderdale, Miami and Palm Beach. Registration is now open.
