A few weeks ago, I announced the first International “Achieving Clinical Excellence” (ACE) conference to be held at the Westin Hotel in Kansas City, Missouri on October 20-22nd, 2010. You can now register for this and all other ICCE events, by clicking here. Through a variety of keynote addresses and workshops, participants will learn the “science and steps” to excellence in clinical practice. Attendees will also meet and learn directly from internationally ranked performers from a variety of professions, including medicine, science, music, entertainment, and sports. I do hope you’ll join us in Kansas City for three days of science, skill building, and inspiration.
In the meantime, I wanted to tell you a bit about one of the conference’s keynote speakers, K. Anders Ericsson, Ph.D. As anyone who has been following my blog knows, Dr. Ericsson is the editor of the massive and influential “Cambridge Handbook of Expertise and Expert Performance.” He is an internationally known writer, researcher, and speaker who is commonly referred to as “the expert on experts.”
