Regional Workshops and Networks

CPPPH offers half-day workshops every four months in five regions of the state. The workshops present one topic in depth, with time for Q & A and information sharing among physician health committees. Participation is by invitation of CPPPH. The workshop is designed for members and staff of physician health committees in hospital medical staffs, medical groups, county medical societies and specialty societies, with these objectives:

  • Deliver practical information, education and training for committees and persons currently doing physician health work in California.  At workshops offered every four months in each region, topics are covered in depth with ample opportunity for questions and information sharing
  • Provide the structure for ongoing communication and statewide information sharing
  • Identify and share information about the resources that the committees currently use
  • Identify needs that CPPPH will want to address as it develops plans for a statewide program and that will allow CPPPH to serve as the voice for physician health in California

A list of all topics presented in all regions is HERE (updated through July 2015).
