The organization sponsors two educational conferences each year, one in the spring and another in the fall. Both are open to members and non-members. The APPD Annual Spring Meeting is the larger of the two, providing scholarship through workshops, oral platform presentations and poster presentations. Topics include assessment, curriculum, mentoring, wellness, global health, faculty development, research, and learning technology. The meeting also features energetic and inspirational general sessions, with a variety of networking opportunities.
The theme for the 2016 Annual Meeting is “Education in the New Era of NAS” and it will be held from March 30 through April 2 at the New Orleans Marriott, in New Orleans, Louisiana. We anticipate over 800 attendees.
