Intensive workshop (IWS) presentations are “hands-on” or interactive extended sessions. We are looking for creative and innovative 2+ hour sessions that will provide skills training or may offer an in-depth review on a condition or topic. IWS sessions can be offered as part of the main conference agenda or as a pre-conference or post-conference event. Intensive workshop sessions may require special arrangements to allow for extensive interaction between the audience and the presenter, increased time for the session, special equipment requirements or hands-on opportunities for the participant. Examples of IWS sessions include: Otitis Workshop, Suturing, Minor Office Procedures, Radiology Review and all day Pharmacology Updates.
Deadline: July 18
