SAM 2020 Podiatric Physician Program

The Florida Podiatric Medical Association conducts one of the finest podiatric meetings in the country each year. The Science & Management Symposium (SAM) is held in the Orlando, Florida area every January, an area that offers a wide variety of activities and attractions for attendees and their families. In 2020, SAM will be held at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort.

Mandatory CECH courses for Podiatric Physician Florida licensure will be offered at SAM 2020, including: Laws and Rules, Risk Management, Science, Practice Management, and Medical Errors. A new one-hour Human Trafficking course, recently implemented by the Florida Legislature, will also be offered. This is a one-time requirement Florida licensees must complete before January 1, 2021. For additional information about this new required course, click HERE.

SAM 2020 will offer 26.5 possible Continuing Education Contact Hours (CECH), depending on courses attended.

Click HERE for additional details about SAM 2020.

The theme of SAM 2020 is "From Hindsight to Foresight". We hope you will join us.
