Solo/Small Group Practice Forum Meet-Up

Wednesday, June 29, 2022 at 5:30 pm. At Cuver in Windsor.  Join us! 

SMLMA Solo/Small Group Physician's Forum

The SMLMA Solo and Small Practice Forum represents the unique challenges and interests of physicians who practice alone or in small professional medical corporations or partnerships with up to ten shareholders, partners, and/or physician employees. We invite you to meet like minded physicians and leaders and learn how SMLMA/CMA can support you in your practice. Hint: It's more than you may be taking advantage of!

Networking for Small/Solo Practice Physicians and Practice Leaders/Managers

What are the challenges facing physicians trying to remain independent or transitioning into private practice from Hospital or Foundation employment? Meet Dr. Warren [Bruce] Chin who is the solo/small practice representative on the SMLMA Board of Directors. His role is to represent your interests and help us identify the best way to serve the solo/small group community of physicians.  Please reach out to Dr. Chin if you have any ideas or suggestions that may help him to better serve your interests.  You can email Dr. Chin at:

MICRA MODERNIZATION 2022: Dr. Chin will lead the conversation on the MICRA Modernization compromise reached recently with the Trial Lawyers Association, keeping the overturn of MICRA protections off the California voter's ballot for 2022. What does this mean to you and your insurance premiums moving forward? Let's discuss this and other topics of interest to your unique practice needs.

CMA Physician Services:  Helping Small Practices Prepare for the Future:

CMA Physician Services Organization (PSO), a subsidiary of CMA, is developing services and solutions to help solo and small practices thrive in a challenging environment. To ensure that those offerings are as meaningful as possible, the staff of the PSO is taking to the streets, meeting with practices across the state, collecting feedback on your unique wants and needs. In this session, CEO David Ford will share the latest developments at the PSO, and gather input from you to make this offering meaningful and valuable to you as a solo/small practice physician.
