APMA Affiliates Add Big Value with Small Group Discussions at The National

February 18, 2015

Affiliates add big value with small group discussions.

The APMA 2015 Annual Scientific Meeting (The National), July 23–26 in Orlando, FL, will be this year’s premier foot and ankle conference. One quality of The National that sets it apart is its sheer scope and diversity of content. The educational program offers multiple specialty tracks as well as content specifically for young physicians, assistants, and experienced members. Simply put, The National offers something for everyone.

To enhance the already robust selection of tracks available through the educational program, this year attendees will be able to receive additional focused knowledge through small group discussions hosted by APMA affiliates on Friday, July 24, from 1:30–5:30 p.m. The group discussions are designed for more intimate learning than general lectures and explore topics of specific interest to the affiliate host.

Each two-hour panel discussion offers two CECH; attend a session in each time slot to earn an additional four CECH at no extra cost! This supplement to the educational program means attendees can receive 29 CECH without paying any fees in addition to the normal cost of registration.
