Event Overview
Welcome message:

CREF 2015, the premier San Diego perfusion meeting, focuses on cardiopulmonary bypass and extracorporeal perfusion. It offers cutting-edge presentations, discussions, and hands-on workshops and extracurricular education on topics related to cardiac surgery, cardiopulmonary bypass, and extracorporeal perfusion. This annual California perfusion conference offers ample CME & CEU credits and is designed to meet the specific educational needs of perfusionists (CCPs), physician assistants (PA-Cs), nurses (RNs), and cardiac surgeons (MDs).

Are you selective about your continuing education and professional growth? Do you prefer to learn about the very latest on cardiopulmonary bypass and extracorporeal perfusion from some of the best and most well-respected researchers and clinicians? If so, the CREF 2015 San Diego perfusion meeting is a perfect fit for you. 

CREF is an interdisciplinary meeting, so it offers education to meet the needs of the entire cardiac surgery team. Our guiding philosophy is simple: teams who learn together make positive, well-informed changes together to improve patents’ lives. To support this concept, team members may accompany full-conference attendees for the Saturday safety and team-building sessions at no cost and receive free CME and free CEU credits for that day only. 

Feel free to take a look around. We think you’ll discover that we’re committed to providing you the best education possible. And if you’re interested in receiving regular updates about the CREF meeting, subscribe to our email newsletter (see form at right), or follow us on Facebook or Twitter.
