After a successful first year, the GPSC will continue to offer its billing education webinars about GPSC incentive fees and select MSP fees for all family physicians.

In 2020, the webinars will be presented as three series (winter, summer, and fall), each with six sessions. Each 90-minute webinar session will be led by physician educators.

Below are details for the scheduled winter 2020 webinars, and details for the spring and fall sessions will be announced as they become available.

Physicians are encouraged to join the live, scheduled webinars to receive information that is up-to-date information, advice that is relevant, and opportunities for real-time engagement. Webinars are not recorded.
