  • finding CME conferences by date/location?

    Do any of you know a good resource for looking up CME-qualifying conferences by location and date. So for example, if I wanted to be in San Diego in January of 2018, how can I search for conferences that are not held by the major medical organizations (eg, AAP, ACP, etc)? I get so many random fliers mailed to me for conferences all over the country that I figure there has to be some database somewhere online?

    A quick Google search for "medical conferences" revealed a bunch of sites like this: https://www.mdlinx.com/medical-conference/

      I have gone to some of these:  http://www.mer.org/

      They are in resort locations but are actually very high quality.  Mostly for FP, but some are of interest to specialists.

      And these guys record everything and sell CME in audio visual format if you can't travel: http://www.cmeinfo.com/

          yielded me nothing terribly useful--I had looked thru MDLink, etc. These types of sites still do not seem super comprehensive and I was just wondering if there was a more robust database out there.

          Those Travel Seminars are very interesting/shady. I'm guessing docs give date/location and then try to get their CME funds/PTO to cover it? Seems like that's what they're designed for. Anyone else done these? Are they frowned upon?

            I've done a total of 3 CME trips in the past.  1 to Germany for a HTN conference and 2 to Hawaii for an Int Med conference.  I found them on a website such as the one I linked to above.  I simply decided where I want to go FIRST, then looked for conferences in that location and during a time of year that worked for me.  I don't know of one comprehensive source.

              I agree with you - this should be a thing. Doesn't seem like it is.
