Disaster Medicine Conference Approved for CME Credit, Early Bird Registration Extended

Hosted by AUC on the beautiful island of St. Maarten, and in cooperation with Harvard Medical Faculty Physicians (HMFP) of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, this conference is an opportunity for healthcare professionals to learn from disaster medicine experts and prepare for future emergencies.

AUC is pleased to share several exciting updates regarding our upcoming Disaster Medicine conference, including: approval for Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit, deadline extension for Early Bird registration and abstract submission, a special discounted rate for students, residents, and fellows, and an updated program book.

Here’s what you need to know:

CME Credit Approval

Our International Conference on Disaster Medicine and Hurricane Resiliency, taking place March 8-11, has been reviewed and is acceptable for up to 16.00 prescribed credit(s) by the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP). Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Early Bird Registration Deadline Extended, Special Student Rate

Our $650 Early Bird registration rate deadline has been extended through Thursday, January 31. Ticket prices will increase to $750 after that date.

We’re also pleased to offer a special rate of just $250 for medical students (non-AUC), veterinary students, residents and fellows. Use promo code RESIDENT to take advantage of the discounted rate.

Registration for all interested attendees should be completed online via our Eventbrite form.

Abstract Submission Deadline Extended

Conference attendees are invited to submit abstracts for Posters, Short Oral Communications, and Workshops. The submission deadline for all three has been extended to 5:00 pm ET on Monday, January 28.
