Struggling with Accountability, Poor Financial Performance, Finishing Projects or Productivity?

We have a fix for that:

The Management Course You Should Have Had in School

Here is a great opportunity to build your Management and Administrative skills.

I am very excited to share with you an opportunity for you to make a difference in your profession and a chance to hone up on some of the most important non-clinical skills a Rehab Professional needs.

HPA - The Catalyst (APTA’s Section on Health Policy and Administration) is excited to be rolling out the inaugural session of the Management Track of LAMP (
LAMP = Leadership, Administration, Management and Payment/Policy) 
at a 2- day (February 14-15, 2017) CSM 2017 pre conference course in San Antonio, TX titled:

Administrative and Management Skills for PT Practice.

This 2-day pre-conference has been under development for quite a long time and a team of some of the most experienced Rehab managers, administrators and educators have put together a fantastic program that they will be presenting for the first time in San Antonio.

This program is for both novice or aspiring rehab managers who want to prepare for their first management position and for more experienced managers who want to brush up their skills or learn how to help new managers get up to speed as quickly and successfully as possible.

We’ve worked hard to identify those topics that will be the most impactful for managers in everyday practice.

Narrowing the topics down has been a real challenge, but here is the list of great topics - each presented by a true expert who actually designed the teaching module - and supplemented by resources and tools for your continued development after you leave San Antonio:

- Aligning Your Efforts and Staff with Your Organization’s Mission Vision and Values

- Performance Management: The Keys to Getting Things Done Successfully

- Finding and Onboarding New Staff

- Managing Human Resources: What Every Manager REALLY Needs to Know about HR and Legal Employment Issues

- Managerial Time Management: Survival Tips, Tricks and Traps

- Negotiating Organizational Behavior Successfully

- Managerial Finance and Budgeting

- Professionally Managing Programs and Projects

- Building a Career Development Plan: For Yourself and Your Staff

The sessions will be informative, interactive and extremely focused on the needs of the participants.

A special networking and social event is planned for the evening of the first day of the program where everyone will get to share ideas and interact with each other and the entire faculty..

More information is coming soon to the HPA - The Catalyst website at

Registration is limited but is now open at

Early bird rates end soon.

Make sure you are part of this inaugural event.

I look forward to seeing you in San Antonio.
