Educational sessions at the IAHCSMM Annual Conference & Expo deliver a balanced mix of small-group and large-group learning opportunities. General educational sessions cover broad industry topics, and concurrent educational sessions allow you to choose your topics of interest or those that relate specifically to your healthcare facility and/or professional development goals. If you’re attending the conference with colleagues from your facility, we encourage you to split up and attend as many educational sessions as possible to maximize the benefits and learning potential for your department.
