Physician Careers: Commercial Payors - Dr. John Fallon (MD/MBA 8th AMMP Conference)
Here's a video of a presentation given by Dr. John Fallon at the 8th Annual AMMP conference titled, "Government Payer Careers." I blogged about his presentation (here) back in April when I was in Boston attending the Association of MD/MBA Programs (AMMP) 8th Annual Conference.
Now, you can view a video of his presentation and slides here (you'll need Microsoft Silverlight to play the video).
