2018 Annual Scientific Meeting in Anchorage kicks off this week

The Civil Aviation Medical Association Annual Scientific Meeting has begun in Anchorage, Alaska, and is scheduled for September 27-29, 2018. The program for this meeting has been approved by the AAFP for a total of 23 hours of CME, and the program is approved by the ABPM for Maintenance of Certification credit (up to 23 hours of MOC).  Attendance this year was higher than expected.

The schedule of events includes a wide variety of talented speakers covering an array of topics.

The registration fee this year includes three breakfast buffets, three lunch buffets, one Thursday field trip to the Alaska Air Museum with a catered buffet dinner, and one banquet on Friday night in the hotel.

The FAA will participate in the annual meeting and has approved the meeting as fulfilling the requirements for AME recertification, provided that the AME completes, turns in, and passes the FAA recertification examination prior to the close of the meeting.  Questions regarding your current recertification status should be directed to your Regional Flight Surgeon’s office.

The latest edition of our publication, “The Flight Physician” contained additional information about the meeting, along with promotional material from several Alaska companies for RV rentals, fishing and wildlife tours, etc. Welcome to Anchorage!
