Event Overview
Welcome message:

Our 31
Annual Fall Conference on Obstetrics is designed for physicians,
certified nurse midwives, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses,
and other health care professionals who face ever increasing challenges in
Obstetrics. The primary goal of this conference is to increase knowledge and
enhance the competence of attendees. Emphasis will be placed on practical
application of the evidence-based topics presented.
Topics for this year’s conference have been selected based on the educational
needs determined from the identified professional practice gaps. The gaps were
derived from a variety of sources including evaluations and outcomes data from
past participants; clinical expert input; Symposia Medicus’ online survey; and
other medical and nursing data.
Conference format will include didactic lectures, smaller group breakout
sessions, case studies, and question and answer sessions.
An outstanding faculty has been assembled for this conference. Each member
was selected based on their individual area of expertise and ability to
communicate current, evidence-based and practical information to participants.
You are sure to enjoy our 31
Annual Fall Conference on Obstetrics while
sharing ideas and experiences with colleagues from across the country in the
beautiful setting of Hawaii.
