Welcome to s.e.p.a.s.

Welcome to the website for the 4th Annual Southeast Physician Advisor Symposium (s.e.p.a.s.). At its inception s.e.p.a.s. was designed as a way to educate our own Physician Advisor Team here at Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System. As our symposium has grown, we have sought to fill the need for education, best practice metrics and strategies for success in this ever changing healthcare landscape, which spread far beyond the borders of our organization. Our purpose is to support the roles of physician advising and utilization management. Our attendees come from across the country to network, learn and share these concepts.

Explore our site and make plans to join us in January 2015.
