Thom A. Mayer, MD, FACEP
Dr. Mayer is the Medical Director for the NFL Players Association, Founder of BestPractices, Inc., a speaker for Executive Speakers Bureau and Huron Consulting Group, and Clinical Professor of Emergency Medicine at George Washington University and Senior Lecturing Fellow at Duke University.
He is one of the most widely-sought speakers on healthcare patient experience, leadership and management, hardwiring flow, trauma and emergency care, pediatric emergency care, EMS/disaster medicine, and sports medicine. In sports medicine, his work at the forefront of changing concussion diagnosis and management in the NFL has changed the way in which these athletes are diagnosed and treated.
This course allowed me to recognize the training, skills and professionalism required by hospital administrators. A residency in emergency medicine gave me the necessary life saving skills for my profession, but this course adds management skills to practice the business of emergency medicine.
