The Future of Pediatric Practice 2019
August 30, 2019, – September 1, 2019, Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resorts, Orlando, FL

Registration is now open! With a new venue and expanded educational sessions, this year’s conference is not to be missed!

After the Pediatric Resident Forum and Brain Bowl competition on Friday, attendees and their families are invited to enjoy live entertainment in the Exhibit Hall before eating, dancing, and meeting Disney characters at the Family Reception. Saturday and Sunday both start with an optional yoga session and hot breakfast before some of the top pediatric experts take the stage. Saturday includes 8 hours of CME/CEU and a full, complimentary lunch. Sunday offers 6 hours of CME/CEU with two new tracks tailored to your practice and educational needs! “Big Thunder Mountain” is the Community Pediatrics Track which includes topics that have been tailored to the primary care general pediatrician, whether in solo or group practice. “Carousel of Progress” is the Hospital Pediatrics Track which includes topics that hospital-based pediatricians, such as hospitalists, specialists, and acute care pediatricians would find beneficial. View the full conference agenda here.

Back by popular demand, an optional bonus track is available on Sunday afternoon. “Stay Independent! Running a Successful & Profitable Pediatric Practice.” will provide a complimentary lunch and additional 4 hours of CME/CEU. Industry experts will discuss ways to retain patients, increase revenues, and effectively manage a pediatric practice. The afternoon will end with an open panel, allowing you to ask the questions you’ve always wanted answered! This bonus track, which can be included with full conference registration or registered for separately, is perfect for providers practicing in an independent practice, providers considering a move to independent practice, and practice administrators/office managers working in a pediatric practice.

Attendees and their families will enjoy beautiful accommodations at Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resorts. Specially priced rooms are available to conference attendees and their guests during the conference and for three days before and three days after the conference, allowing you to participate in educational sessions during the day and enjoy the amenities at night. Specially priced tickets to Disney theme parks are available to conference attendees, including tickets to attend the Food and Wine Festival at Epcot – a short walk from the resort.

Abstract Submission for the FCAAP 2019 RESIDENT FORUM

In its fourth year, the Pediatric Resident Forum highlights the work being done by Florida’s pediatric residents and provides education for residents on topics requested by residents! The Resident Forum is an exciting opportunity for residents pursuing a career in pediatrics to share their research and projects with peers from across the state. This year’s Forum includes a speed mentoring session, allowing residents to get advice in one-on-one or small group settings from industry experts. Residents do not have to present to attend the Forum.

Selected abstracts will be presented during the Forum in poster format. Abstracts may be on Original Research (including community advocacy), Quality Improvement Projects, or unique Case Reports. Submissions must be received by the Chapter through the appropriate submission form by midnight EST on Wednesday, May 15, 2019, to be considered for presentation at the 2019 Pediatric Resident Forum. The top abstract in each category will be selected after presentations and the winners announced immediately before the final round of the Brain Bowl.
