The NAMSS Annual Conference draws medical services professionals together from across the country. Medical services professionals (MSPs) are an essential part of any healthcare organization. MSPs have a wide variety or responsibilities that include primarily accountability for the administrative and medical-legal structure of the medical staff organization in hospital, managed care, surgical center and other healthcare settings. Some of the most important responsibilities of MSPs include credentialing, privileging, and re-credentialing of all physicians and advanced practice clinicians, assuring compliance with various state and federal regulations and accrediting body standards pertaining to the functions of the medical staff.

We are looking for a dynamic variety of presentations to meet the diverse needs of the NAMSS membership. In addition to indicating the track of each session (Credentialing/Privileging, Accreditation/Regulatory, Executive Management, Leadership/Professional Development, or New Innovative Trends), NAMSS will indicate the topic experience for each session: Introductory, Mid-Level, or Advanced. NAMSS Conference attendees represent a wide variety of experience levels in many topics, so please consider the level at which your presentation will address your topic. The Conference Committee will also ask you to please indicate the preferred length of time for your session. This year's schedule will look different than the past few years of NAMSS conferences and the Committee is excited to try new session lengths and formats. 

Please be sure to read all directions carefully as your navigate through the site and be sure to complete all requested fields. If you have any difficulty with the submission process, please contact
