Greetings from the Chairs of the World Congress on Continuing Professional Development (CPD) 2016. We are looking forward to seeing you on March 17 - 19, 2016 at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego, California for this premiere, international meeting of health professions education researchers, teachers, students and practitioners, as well as other key stakeholders including patients.
The World Congress will showcase best practices and provide direction for the future of our field. Sponsoring partners are the Society for Academic Continuing Medical Education (SACME), Association for Hospital Medical Education (AHME), and Alliance for Continuing Education in the Health Professions (ACEhp). Steering Committee efforts have been complemented by an outstanding, international Advisory Board.
Cutting-edge topics and a variety of formats and interactive sessions - including Research and Best Practices Oral Presentations, Workshops, Research Symposia, Posters, Innovation Lab, Research Coaching Lab, Reflections and Connections, and a Social Media Clinic - promise a dynamic experience. Come mix with CME/CPD and IPE professionals from around the globe to “Advance Learning and Care in the Health Professions.”
