The government isn’t funding my attendance/travel, why should I take part?

There are multiple reasons.

First, it’s one of the most affordable meetings in town, even in the country, and costs even less if you’re an AMSUS member (or become a member). Organizational funding for meetings can be difficult to obtain, so AMSUS has made this meeting even easier for you to attend on your own.  For the first time, AMSUS is offering reduced rate two-day passes. You can earn up to 25 CE/CEUs, which works out to the bargain price of $12/credit as a member.  You can also attend the Meeting even if you don’t want to earn CE/CME. You are able to attend all sessions and visit the show floor. The cost for this ticket is $50.  To register, please use promo code AMSUS14GUEST (case sensitive) on the Registration Site.

Second, this year’s meeting is shaping up to be a great one! International attendance will be strong with participation from all over the world. There will be attendance & presentations by senior leadership from the U.S. Surgeon General, Assistant Secretary of Defense (Health Affairs), and Interim Under Secretary for Health, Veterans Health Administration.  There will also be several Ebola sessions by top representatives from the USPHS and involving leaders from the DoD, CDC, DoS, DHS.
