Even if you will not be practicing for several years, there are several reasons why KCO may still be for you:
• Receive information from national and state loan forgiveness programs.
• Network with future colleagues and administrators.
• Discover the wide range of practice options Kansas communities offer.
• Talk with exhibitors about providing Locum Tenens temporary coverage for them and make extra money during residency.
• Scope out what kind of physician specialties Kansas communities are projecting they will need.
• Get the inside scoop on what it's like to practice in rural Kansas at the panel presentation at 3 p.m.
• How far in advance are employers willing to sign physicians?
• Do they take part in loan forgiveness or repayment programs?
• Do they hire residents to provide temporary coverage (a.k.a. moonlighting) through the Kansas Locum Tenens program?
(Residents can earn extra money and gain valuable experience working in various facilities.)
• What is their patient population?
• What services are available at their hospital?
Dress is business professional unless you have just finished clinic in which case scrubs are acceptable.
Bring a copy of your CV and a list of questions that you would like to ask exhibitors.
To win prizes simply visit at least 10 different exhibitors and have them initial your form. There will be a variety of wonderful prizes from local business. Individual exhibitors may also have giveaways.
