*Due to popular demand, we have added some 30 minute optional “Meet the Professor Sessions” (Q&A session with a faculty member). These sessions will allow for informal dialogue between the attendees and professor in a small group setting and will follow at the end of each daily schedule. These sessions are optional but CME credit will be granted to those that attend.
