Washington State Urology Society Managers (WSUSM) is a group dedicated to meeting the specific needs of urology practice administrators, managers and staff, supporting our colleagues with ongoing education, up-to-date ideas, legislative information and networking. If you aren’t already a member, we encourage you to become involved with our group. You will grow personally and professionally from your participation and your practice will benefit from your involvement. The organization came together in September 1997 with the help of a few dedicated Urology managers and the support of the Washington State Urology Society. Since that time, we have enjoyed many workshops, retreats and networking sessions. Those of us who have been involved with the group for many years have seen our membership numbers rise and fall. In today’s world of ever-increasing regulations and time constraints, running a medical practice can be frustrating and rewarding at the same time. It seems difficult to take time away from our every day responsibilities to attend “another meeting”. WSUSM makes every effort to ensure that time is worthwhile. Once you have attended a few meetings, you will agree the time away was valuable to both you and your practice. We are always looking for new ideas and feedback to help the organization grow and fulfill the needs of the members.
