Family Medicine Workshop

The Family Medicine Workshop will examine a broad spectrum of topics and concerns of clinical interest and relevance to primary care physicians. The objective is to provide information on diagnostic techniques, advanced technical theory, current research, problem solving methods, and management techniques within the core content areas of family medicine. The program is scheduled over two weekends with each two-day weekend course covering major topic areas for up to 20 CME credits. Between the two weekends, over 120 family physicians will attend this unique educational experience.

The 2017 Family Medicine Workshop will be held Saturday-Sunday, January 14-15, 2017, and Saturday-Sunday, January 28-29, 2017, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Dublin, OH.

2017 topics include:
  • ENT
  • Cardiovascular
  • Dermatology
  • Immunology
  • Pulmonary
  • Pharmacology
  • Infectious Diseases
  • Hematology/Oncology

Support
The OAFP seeks corporate partners to provide sponsorships that will help create valuable education for Ohio’s family physicians including the eight clinical topics that are presented between the two weekends. A sponsorship enhances the quality of the program by offsetting honoraria, travel expenses, and other expenses related to obtaining a highly-respected faculty and delivering quality education. The OAFP will work with the sponsor to create a sponsorship package that best fits both organizations’ needs. In recognition of each partners’ support, the OAFP will credit that company as an official supporter on signage displayed at the meeting; in a post-meeting issue of our quarterly magazine, The Ohio Family Physician ((print and digital circulation is more than 4,800), and in a post-event edition of the Weekly Family Medicine Update, our weekly e-newsletter (circulation more than 4,100).

Exhibits
Exhibiting at the Family Medicine Workshop is a great way to get exposure for your company with Ohio’s family physicians. Tabletop exhibits are held on the Saturday of each weekend’s workshop. The cost of exhibit space is $750 per Saturday or $1,200 if you attend both Saturdays. Exhibitors will receive a 3’ by 6’ draped table, chair, final attendee list, and one complimentary meal ticket to Saturday’s dinner with the physicians. Exhibiting companies will be recognized on signage displayed at the meeting, in a post-meeting edition of the Weekly Family Medicine Update, our weekly e-newsletter (circulation more than 4,100) and in a post-event issue of our quarterly magazine, The Ohio Family Physician (print and digital circulation is more than 4,800).
