Telling It Like It Is was founded to provide cutting-edge education unrestricted by the current CME guidelines. In 10 years, we’ve experienced unprecedented growth, attracting 600 attendees (and growing!) to Florida each winter. This meeting hits the trifecta: Top-quality education, affordable registration, and a spectacular location.

This meeting’s greatest asset is our highly experienced faculty and devoted teachers who will help shape the program and deliver expert perspective to attendees. Thanks to them, attendees will leave this meeting as more knowledgeable and confident surgeons.

Please visit for more updates on speakers, programming and hotels and more. I hope you’ll consider joining us in February!
