Watch for New Date in Tampa


Summit Originally Planned on April 1st is Being Postponed


In response to concerns over COVID19, it’s necessary to postpone the Summit. We are working closely with USF/Center for Advanced Medical Simulation & Learning (CAMLS) on an appropriate date to reschedule.

Educational session leaders and speakers are still eager to present. Watch for announcements on the new date shortly. You will still earn 5 hours of CEUs on the rescheduled date.





This Summit’s agenda will help you turn strategy into reality!


Florida has become a center of excellence for medicine and research. This triumph means medical institutions must continue to find innovative ways to deliver care to the region’s population and the world. Get the latest insights on how the Southwest and Central Florida areas are designing, building, operating, and delivering patient care in the next generation of medical facilities.
