Panel 1- Where are they now? (40 min) 

Session Description: Last year this was the panel which was just launching (and by far the most energetic). Bringing them back this year will give attendees a chance to hear lessons learned in the first year. All three are doing very well so it should also provide encouragement for those on the fence.
Kenneth Qiu, MD (moderator); Laura Hughes, MD; Deepti Mundkur, MD; Jake Mutch, DO; and Christina Mutch, DO

5:40 – 6:20 p.m.

Panel 2- You're Hired (40 min) 

Session Description: Starting your own practice has been synonymous with doing DPC for the last several years. Many students don't have that risk tolerance or are not in a financial situation to do so. Luckily, the market to hire into DPC has been expanding rapidly and offers a safer alternative. This panel exposes learners to another opportunity to do DPC and may lead them to search for DPC jobs at the end of residency, filling a growing need.
Kenneth Qiu, MD (moderator); Jonathan Schmidt, MD; Jamie Qualls, DO; and Josh Carpenter, MD

6:20 – 7:00 p.m.

Panel 3- DPC and the underserved (40 min)

Session Description:  For years, one of the hardest misconceptions to shake is DPC is for the rich and is basically concierge medicine. In reality, the uninsured and underinsured are one of the biggest beneficiaries of the DPC model. Learn from physicians who will share what a DPC practice has done for their population can help break the misconception.
Kenneth Qiu, MD (moderator); Nick Tomsen, MD and Brandon Alleman, MD
