HCMS Marketing 101: HCMS Resources to Develop Your Patient Base

Need more patients?  HCMS can help.

Building and enhancing your patient base is not easy. Regardless of whether you are a young physician developing your practice or an established physician facing a retiring referral base, it is important to know the tools available to you to grow your practice. Many physicians assume that the process is expensive and time consuming. It does not have to be. It just has to be disciplined and the Harris County Medical Society (HCMS) can help. 

The date for 2017 Marketing 101 seminar will be on Tuesday, July 11, 2017, 6-8:30 p.m. @ The Health Museum, 1515 Hermann Drive, Houston, TX 77074. HCMS would be glad to provide the CME at Greater Houston area hospitals. Please contact Ahuva Terk at ahuva_terk@hcms.org  for additional information.
