SACME 2023 Multichannel Annual Meeting: Inspiring and Igniting the CPD Imagination

The Society for Academic Continuing Medical Education (SACME) invites you to join us for our 2023 Multichannel Annual Meeting, which will be hosted March 14th through the 17th in Nashville, Tennessee, and online!

The theme for this year’s conference is “Inspiring and Igniting the CPD Imagination."

Inspiring and igniting the CPD imagination is about new collaborations that enhance the value of CME/CPD for our organizations and our learners to improve patient care. Learn from colleagues who’ve unlocked the CPD imagination with innovative strategies in interprofessional and team-based education, promoting well-being in our personal and professional lives, and enhancing equity, diversity, inclusion, and accessibility in programming.

Ignite your own imagination with examples of working in the evolving CPD teaching and learning environment, the use of technology to enhance learning and teaching, using data-driven CPD, and incorporating quality improvement and patient safety in our work.

    This Annual Meeting will feature:

    • Keynote speakers and panels
    • Hands-on workshops
    • Small-group work
    • Short research and best practices presentations and posters
    • Networking opportunities
    • Social engagement in-person and virtually

    Longitudinal programming will occur in the weeks leading up to the three days of concentrated events in March and in the months following the Annual Meeting. Schedule of events subject to change. 

    Registration is now open!

    You must select your attendance type either Virtual or In-Person registration. You must be logged in to your SACME account in order to receive member pricing.
