Choose from core topics identified by your peers as essential to the practice of family medicine. Plan also to attend some of the unique topics that cover timely issues and new research, bridge performance gaps, and address attendee interest.

Interactive Lectures

These dynamic sessions are the core of FMX education. Each 60-minute session will culminate in a collaborative dialogue during which you can submit and vote on questions from your device via the Audience Engagement System. Find your knowledge gaps by participating in polling questions.  

Clinical Procedure Workshops

Attendees observe expert faculty demonstrating procedures followed by hands-on practice of procedural techniques in the CPWs. These sessions are designed to enhance skills-based competencies. These workshops typically run between two and four hours in length. Separate fee and registration required.
