|At the OAFP, our members, partners, and employees are our highest priorities. We are continuing to monitor the COVID-19 situation and are taking precautionary measures to keep our event participants safe. View the latest precautionary measures on the OAFP website.|
- Strongly encouraging all attendees and staff to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before attending
- Requiring masks or personal face covering for all participants, OAFP staff, and hotel personnel in all public areas and the conference ballroom

Designed to maximize both continuing medical education (CME) and weekend family time, attendees will hear four 2.5 hour presentations per weekend and earn up to 28 CME credits over both weekends. 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. Each two-day weekend course will provide time for case discussion and interaction with the faculty.
