We hope to see you at What’s New in Medicine (WNIM) on September 8 and 9, 2023. This annual continuing medical education conference brings together medical professionals from across Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and even Canada to hear from dozens of speakers on hot topics in healthcare. If you can’t attend in person, consider our virtual and recorded options.


WNIM includes a day-long track on Pediatrics featuring speakers from Seattle Children’s. Other tracks include Infectious Diseases (Friday, September 8) and Internal Medicine (parallel track to Pediatrics offered on Saturday, September 9)


CME credits: Up to 24 Category 1 CME credits are available (8 on Friday, 16 on Saturday).


Participation options: WNIM allows either in-person, livestream, or recorded participation.  If you register for all three sessions ($300), you can attend two in-person or virtually and then capture the third online (recorded) for up to one year after the conference. If you select only one day ($170), you can select any one of the three sessions either in-person, livestream or recorded.  However, your selection must be done beforehand, and space is limited for those planning to be in-person.   Regardless, your selection can be viewed up until a year later, as all sessions will be recorded.
