Medicare Graduate Medical Education
March 18, 10:30 a.m. – noon
Daniel Hettich, J.D., M.A., Partner, King & Spalding L.L.P.
GME provides a funding stream to train the next generation of dentists.
Medicare, through its Direct Graduate Medical Education (DGME) payment system,
compensates teaching hospitals for Medicare’s share of the costs directly
related to training residents. This session features a recognized expert on
dental GME who will provide dental educators with an update on the issues
facing GME, including funding and proposed federal rules that may impact dental
residency programs in nonhospital settings.
Political Spotlight—What Does It All
March 19, 8:30 – 9:45 a.m.
Mary C. Curtis and Patricia Murphy, Columnists, CQ Roll Call
Mary C. Curtis has worked at The New York
Times, The Baltimore Sun, The Charlotte Observer and as National
Correspondent for Politics Daily. Patricia Murphy covers national politics for The Daily Beast. Previously, she was the
Capitol Hill Bureau Chief for Politics
Daily and Founder and Editor of Citizen
Jane Politics. The first year of a new presidential administration saw
robust discussions on a range of issues that included travel bans, tax reform
and changes in health care choice and competition. 2018 will provide Americans
another opportunity to either move forward with the Administration’s policies
or stymie them by electing more democrats during the midterm election cycle.
This year’s Political Spotlight will entertain and inform audiences with honest
and unbiased analysis of American politics and policies affecting academic
dentistry and the dental profession.
Health Care Reform Going Forward

2017 was an eventful year for health care, and in 2018 the Affordable Care Act remains
a centerpiece of the discussion. This session will analyze the various health

U.S. Supreme Court Update
March 19, 1:30 – 3:00 p.m.
Lisa Soronen, J.D., Executive Director, State and Local Legal Center, Supreme
Court Advocacy for State and Local Government
With a new justice on the U.S. Supreme Court and the potential for more changes

A U.S. Supreme Court expert will discuss how litigation related to the travel
ban, free speech on campus, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals and state
action immunity will impact academic dentistry.
