What is CORE?

CORE is a Clinical Operations Retreat for Executives - an event intended for senior decision-makers organized by Halloran Consulting Group.  Our focus is on the pressing issues that keep you and your peers up at night. The real difference between this and other conferences is that CORE creates an opportunity for deeper discussion between colleagues in a candid and collaborative environment.

CORE is held at the beautiful Ocean Edge Resort and Golf Club in Brewster, MA and is free to attend and invite-only.  You will only need to cover travel and accommodations.
