Education and Networking

In the healthcare industry, information comes in fast—and change is a constant.

Belonging to VGM enables you to stay up to date on the latest industry trends and best practices, access experts, and network with your peers. VGM education offers the online training and education you need and is committed to developing and delivering educational programs that support your success.

Where Community Meets Opportunity in the Heartland

We believe we create opportunities for ourselves and others when we come together. That’s why each of our membership communities hosts its own educational and networking events with special peer-to-peer groups throughout the year. But nothing exemplifies this concept more than our annual Heartland Conference. This event brings members, vendors, and industry experts together in VGM’s hometown of Waterloo, Iowa, for educational sessions where you can earn CEUs, as well as a host of networking events so you can learn from your peers. It’s a one-of-a-kind experience you can’t afford to miss.
