A FAMILY MEDICINE FORUM
EXHIBITOR REGISTRATION INFORMATION
Make plans NOW to participate in the Family Medicine Forum – a Procedure Clinic and Residency Fair scheduled to take place Saturday, September 29, 2007. We are working with FMIG leaders at each medical school campus to make this a successful year!
When & Where
Date: Saturday, September 29, 2007
Location: Oak Brook Marriott Hotel
The Family Medicine Forum is designed to offer ample interaction between students and residency programs. The event will consist of exhibit booths, hands-on demonstrations and workshops, all sponsored by participating residency programs. As an exhibitor, you may also choose to host a demonstration station right in the exhibit hall, or you may wish to present a one-hour workshop during one of the breakout sessions. These options provide residency program representatives with more one-on-one interaction with medical students.
Workshops and demonstration stations will be assigned on a first-come/ first-served basis. Space is limited for exhibits, workshops and demonstrations, so submit your requests early! A list of suggested workshop and demonstration topics is enclosed, although you are not required to select from this list. However, please be advised that IAFP has the right to refuse a topic.
If your program chooses to present a workshop or host a demonstration station, or both, we encourage you to rank-order two or three topics of interest. That way, if another program has already signed up for your preferred topic, you can still participate. You will receive a confirmation of your topic assignment. Please note that a residency program can host no more than 1 workshop and 1 demonstration station. This will allow for more interested programs to participate.
Residency Program Participation Options
Residency programs may choose from the following four participation options:
Programs choosing to host a demonstration station or workshop must provide the necessary supplies, models, and equipment. IAFP will make on-site arrangements for electrical hook-ups and audio-visual equipment, provided such requests are made in advance. IAFP is unable to provide any medical-related supplies and equipment. Please note you are also responsible for the proper disposal of all materials at the completion of your workshop.
A luncheon will be provided at the event. Each residency program will be allowed three participants. Should you have more than three program representatives, please submit an additional $25.00 for each person to cover lunch costs.
Please return your exhibitor registration form and fee to the IAFP Foundation office. The deadline for pre-registration is Friday, September 7th. Checks should be made payable to IAFP Foundation. Exhibit space and workshop and demonstration topics will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis by fax or postmark date. Exhibit space is limited, so send your requests in early!
Cancellations made prior to Friday, August 31, 2007 will be honored and full refunds will be issued, less a $50 processing fee. Cancellations made after August 31, 2007 are non-refundable. All cancellation requests must be received in writing at the Illinois Academy of Family Physicians Foundation office. "No-shows," programs who sign up to participate but do not attend the function, will forfeit 100% of the total registration fee.
