UCAOA recognizes the importance of continuing education (and especially urgent care-specific courses) for our physicians. To provide CME to physicians, UCAOA must maintain our accreditation through the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education. This process requires significant fees and staff hours to ensure that stringent guidelines are followed by UCAOA as well as all vendors and sponsors involved in our meetings in order to maintain our good accreditation standing.
Most other physician medical association conferences are funded or supported by corporations and/or pharmaceutical companies. UCAOA is working to align itself with corporate partners to offset attendee costs and corporate support has been growing but is not at a level yet to wholly underwrite the meeting’s expenses.
All physicians (MD/DO) must pay the CME fee. If you do not pay the fee and add it on after April 6, 2016, you will be charged an additional $50 administrative fee.
Photographic & Video Images Consent
Are children permitted in the exhibit hall and/or classrooms?

When do I get my Badge?
Badges will be distributed on site upon checking in at the registration counter. Photo ID will be required to pick up your badge. Registration will be located in the Osceola Lobby.

Are the venues accessible to people with disabilities?

What should I wear?
Attire for the meeting is business casual. Every effort will be made to provide a comfortable learning environment; however, meeting room temperatures can fluctuate greatly and may be difficult to control. The temperature is often cool in the meeting rooms, therefore, a jacket or sweater is recommended.
Should I bring my laptop/tablet?
Because of the way most course rooms are set up to accommodate many people comfortably, we do not provide outlets and tables in the meeting rooms. If you would like to bring your laptop/tablet remember to bring it fully charged each morning.
Is there a Convention mobile app?
Course information and handouts are available via the Convention mobile app which will be available in early April. To download the free app, search UCAOA Meetings in the Apple App Store and Google Play store.
When will I receive my CME Certificate?
You will receive your CME once you complete the overall Conference Evaluation through Survey Monkey (this will be sent to all attendees at the close of the conference). There will be a link at the end of the evaluation which will take you to the online CME form. Once you complete the form it will electronically submit to UCAOA. UCAOA will process it and the certificate will be available in your UCAOA online profile under Professional Development.
