Switch Up Your Schedule Strategically
Many of the tips we provide discuss taking time to plan and to choose your meetings with serious consideration (vs. copying/pasting what you did the year before). Well, I challenge you to do it again!
There was a tip I provided all the way back in September of 2019 that encouraged DPMs to “invest in your passion”; meaning choose meetings that align with your practice goals and niche (if you have one). Click here to go back in time and check it out.
As you consider the meetings you select for 2023, take time to reflect on the meetings you have been to in the last two years. Which ones inspired you? Which ones drained you? Which one was the same one you went to because you just go through the motions every year?
If you specialize in a particular area (i.e. sports medicine), it might be difficult to find a meeting you’ve never been to with that focus; and that’s OK! I wouldn’t recommend switching up your meeting schedule for the sake of switching it up. BUT, make sure to check out our meeting calendar to see if there is an event that aligns with your area of focus you may have previously missed! Click here for our calendar.
Another thought… go to a meeting that isn’t specifically for podiatrists. It’s difficult to get out of the podiatry vacuum and it can cause ideas to become stagnant. Check out some of these out-of-industry meetings and/or learning tools that may get you out of burnout mode!

Regardless of the meetings you do end up going to, just be sure to choose them with intent and a strong strategy.
To really take it up a notch, request one of our Meeting Workbooks. Your Meeting Workbook will serve as a guide to keep you on track, forcing you to set meeting goals, challenging you to step out of your comfort zone and interact with your peers and faculty members, as well as finding new ways to enhance your practice and/or patient care by learning about new products and services in the exhibit hall.
