Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Virtual Symposium?

You will be able to enjoy the same educational experience online as our live annual symposium over two days. Our expert speakers will lead sessions in real time followed by a live Q&A.

Can I get credit for attending?

Yes! By attending accredited days, you will have the chance to earn up to 16 continuing education credits.

How should I prepare?
  1. Ensure you have access to a computer with a WIFI connection. We will simply provide a link to access the virtual conference.
  2. Before the date, take note of which day(s) you’d like to attend and jot down their times.
  3. Be ready to interact and ask questions of your session leaders.
What if I miss something?

A big benefit of our virtual conference is that each day will be recorded and you will have access to the content up to one year after the event. So, if you pay for the full conference now and are not able to attend day-of, you can still acess the material later.
