Physician Volunteers Needed for Evacuation Shelters in San Antonio

As you know, Hurricane Harvey hit the Texas Gulf Coast and caused serious devastation and is still causing serious flooding across Texas. Evacuation shelters are open in San Antonio and others will be opened. BCMS, through its Emergency Preparedness Committee, is charged with providing medical services for relief shelters that are setup in San Antonio.

Physicians, nurses and other medical volunteers are needed to provide coverage through the week and perhaps longer.

Volunteers will provide basic medical care at the shelters. We need a core group of family practice, internal medicine, pediatrics, orthopedics, geriatrics, etc., but all physicians and nurses are encouraged to volunteer. Volunteers will be assigned to coordinate medical care, with medical teams volunteering for shifts of up to eight hours in a shelter. Any time you can spare is most appreciated!

Seminar on Buying or Selling a Medical Practice

Buying or Selling a Medical Practice

A Seminar Presented by    Mike Kreager, Esq.

of Kreager Mitchell, PLLC

Saturday, September 9, 2017
Click Here to RSVP

Bexar County Medical Society Building
4334 N. Loop 1604 West, San Antonio
9 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.

No purchase or sale of a medical practice is exactly like another.  Your purchase or sale of your practice will be unique to you.  But the process itself, though daunting, follows a predictable path.

It all starts with valuation – how much is the practice worth? – and proceeds through structuring the purchase or sale and negotiations to document the transaction and sign the contract.  In this session, attorney Mike Kreager will use a model case to examine each stage.

Michael Kreager has practiced business and tax law in Texas for 38 years.  Mike founded Kreager Mitchell, PLLC over 20 years ago to address the unique business, corporate, tax and regulatory legal needs of physician and physician practices.  Mike authored Employment Contracts for Physicians: The Comprehensive Guide, Second Edition, and “What’s My Practice Worth?  A Comprehensive Guide to Practice Valuations and Sales” both of which are published and sold by the TMA.  His extensive article on physician covenants not to compete, “The Physician’s Right in §15.50(B) to Buy Out a Covenant Not to Compete” is read by physicians, attorneys and judges as the definitive work on the subject.  It is available online and was published in the Baylor Law Review, volume 61, page 357 (2009).

Admission is FREE to BCMS Members

BCMS Writing Workshop

The Bexar County Medical Society will sponsor a Writing Workshop on Sept. 23 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the new BCMS Building at 4334 N. Loop 1604 W.
It will be conducted by Gemini Ink and is open to all physicians

Breakfast and a light lunch will be served. 
Supporting sponsors for the event are Dr. Dale Wood and
San Antonio Medicine Publisher Louis Doucette.

Following is a brief description of the event:

Breathing Life Into Stories: A Prose Workshop
Few experience the human story quite the way physicians do, for they see us at our most vulnerable and our most valiant. This interactive workshop will explore the stories each of us has to tell, from both a medical and/or human perspective, and present techniques for crafting vivid, compelling prose that leaps off the page.

To register please call 210-301-4388.
