The 2011 Physicians Alabama Opportunity Fair (PAOF) will be Saturday, Feb. 26, in Point Clear at the Marriott’s Grand Hotel. The event is free for attendees and is open to primary care residents, third and fouth year medical students, and licensed physicians interested in relocating to a small or rural community.
PAOF was created in 1990 to assist small Alabama communities in attracting primary care physicians and showcases more than 30 of Alabama’s rural communities.
PAOF is sponsored by 13 health care organizations interested in helping rural communities facilitate the excellent health care they deserve. Representatives from rural communities in Alabama will highlight the resources of their areas and the opportunities to practice medicine in a small-town environment.
Because of the generosity of its sponsors, PAOF is free for physician attendees. PAOF will pay for one night’s accommodations at the Grand Hotel and reimburse attendees with a small travel stipend after the meeting. In addition, a luncheon and a cocktail reception are part of the PAOF experience. Door prizes will be given away throughout the day, with the grand prize of $250 to be drawn for at 5 p.m.!
For more information, contact Jeff Arrington, executive director of the Alabama Academy of Family Physicians, at (877) 343-2237 or visit the PAOF website.
