As we approach the fall season, it’s a great time to give ourselves a “checkup” on our professional health. We might ask ourselves a few questions regarding work that we perform on a regular basis. What is one thing that I can add to my routine that will make a difference? What do I need to know? What do I need to learn? What processes do I need to put into place? College resources can help to provide answers to these questions.
The College and its many offerings provide an excellent “center” to support all of these areas of your professional health.
What can you add to your routine? We are very close to unveiling the much-anticipated “Time for an Allergist” campaign, which the College has been planning since the beginning of the year. Not only will we be putting big resources behind this digital campaign to increase PCP referrals to allergists, but we’ll also provide easy ways for you to participate in helping to get the word out about our unique qualifications to treat allergy and asthma patients. Promoting the campaign and using its resources are two easy things you can add to your routine that will make a difference!
What do you need to know? Start by reading College Insider each week and checking the member website regularly. These are great habits to be sure you catch the latest information about reimbursements, clinical recommendations, advocacy alerts, and other new developments.
What do you need to learn? The Annual Scientific Meeting is the best opportunity of the year to access educational content from experts in A/I. Add the year-round knowledge provided by Annals, Allergy Watch, the AllergyTalk podcast, webinars and all of the other offerings on the College Learning Connection.
What processes do you need to have in place? The College’s toolkits offer help with marketing your practice, mastering coding, using practice parameters and yardsticks, and more. We also have a Practice Assessment Quiz and many articles about practice models, staffing, and procedures that are helpful to ensure an efficient allergy practice.
The College is always taking the temperature of our profession so we can provide what’s needed to help allergists thrive. I encourage you to keep the College top of mind, as each click on our website or newsletter will contribute to your professional health and the health of our community of allergists.
