Wet labs offer unique opportunities to engage in one-on-one discussions with expert instructors. Choose from 32 different courses, so you can customize your education to best meet your objectives. There are three different types offered – didactic featuring structured presentations, wet labs offering hands-on practice, and brief trials highlighting new technologies. All of these courses are designed to help raise your skills and outcomes, so make sure you reserve a seat as soon as possible.

You must be registered for the meeting before you can register for wet labs, which are optional add-ons. Some wet labs require an additional fee as indicated below. You must register in advance to reserve your space. Each wet lab has a limited number of seats available, so please register as early as possible to ensure your participation. Once a wet lab has reached its maximum seating, it will be marked as “full” on the registration form.

This meeting is entirely non-CME.

Although there are industry sponsors for physician presentations during general sessions, industry DOES NOT influence the choice of faculty, topics or content (with the exception of the “New Technology” session on Thursday afternoon).

By contrast, for the breakfast/lunch/dinner programs the sponsoring company DOES select the faculty, topics and/or content for these sessions only.
