Conference are back in person! Learn how to make the most of a large academic conference event!

Large academic conferences like the AAMC can be a bit overwhelming with the variety of (often overlapping) presentations, networking events, and conversations. And, given the expense of attending, lodging and transportation, you want to maximize every minute of an action-packed few days.

In this webinar, a panel made up of members of the OnlineMedEd Institutional Success team share their tips, tricks, and best practices that they have learned over the years as attendees, speakers, and planners.

Conferences offer a rich source of contacts to build your network at the same time provide invaluable educational opportunities. Join us and learn how to make a large academic conference work for you!
