CSHA’s primary objective is to provide its members access to the
educational programming and materials necessary to remain current
in the rapidly evolving field of healthcare law. We strive to
retain the most qualified speakers and educate members on a wide
array of relevant healthcare law topics, with emphasis on the
practical knowledge essential to California practitioners.
The Fall seminar is a one-day event that focuses on new
California legislation and current developments in healthcare
law. This program alternates between Southern and Northern
California and is hosted at a hotel or conference center with
close proximity to an airport for convenient arrival and
Annual Meeting & Spring Seminar
CSHA’s annual meeting is held each Spring at a premier California
resort in such beautiful locations as Napa, Laguna Beach, Palm
Desert, Del Mar and Monterey. For the convenience of members,
locations rotate annually between Southern and Northern
California. The three-day event begins Friday morning, continues
through Sunday morning and typically includes 12-14 CLE hours.
The Friday morning session often involves a three-hour
workshop or single-subject intensive. Seminar scheduling leaves
plenty of time in the afternoons to enjoy the resort community.
Saturday night features a dinner party with live entertainment.
CSHA periodically offers day-long programs dedicated to a
specific topic. These programs are frequently held in conjunction
with the Fall Seminar.
Teleconferences & Webinars
CSHA also hosts topical teleconferences and webinars. Members are
informed about these programs via email and website postings.
Tom Watson and Peder Batalden of Horvitz & Levy will present
their popular annual Litigation Update. While this is usually a
much-anticipated feature of the CSHA Annual Meeting & Spring
Seminar, it has been moved to a virtual format this year due to
the COVID-19 pandemic. As regular Annual Meeting attendees know,
this session highlights significant appellate court decisions
that will impact hospitals, physicians, medical staffs, and
payers. Tom and Peder will focus on the decisions that will shape
the California healthcare industry for years to come.
As you know by now, due to the circumstances created by the
COVID-19 pandemic, CSHA has cancelled its Annual Meeting and
Spring Seminar. CSHA staff is working to address all of the
follow-up issues triggered by the cancellation of our seminar and
thus we have developed the following list below of FAQs to
address some questions and concerns.
We wish you all the best health as we navigate these difficult
