Consider tomorrow’s teleconference (An Update on New Vaccine Recommendations) being held by the American Society for Microbiology and those scheduled over this summer to keep you current about developments in your field and to remain competitive in your industry. The personal knowledge and skills you can gain with enrollment in these professional development activities can also help you serve your patients and clients more effectively.
Without ever leaving your laboratory or office, you and your team can learn from expert scientists and earn AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM and contact hours for California or Florida Continuing Education credits.
Groups of professionals from your lab facility can participate in a teleconference together. Whether you host 1 or 100 participants at a facility, you pay the same registration fee of $100.
Get immediate answers to your own questions and conveniently learn from other microbiologists hundreds of miles away during these live one-hour interactive teleconferences. Most teleconferences consist of a 45-minute presentation followed by a 15-minute question and answer period. PowerPoint slides are emailed prior to the start of a teleconference for you to prepare your questions and answers.
