Registration Fee for This Year's Conference
The DFCM Event Committee works hard to ensure that our attendees are treated to a day of knowledge in an environment that is conducive to learning and the sharing of pertinent ideas.
Every year when we plan this event, we value your contributions to DFCM and we take your comments into consideration. We revisit workshops, include new topics and tailor the conference's format from the feedback we have received.
Organizing events of this kind come at a cost for DFCM and these expenses accrue every year. This year, we will be charging a nominal fee to attendees and presenters to ensure the partial recovery of costs incurred for this event.
The registration fees will be structured as follows:
Faculty Members: $50.00 + tax
Alumni: $50.00 + tax
Non-Faculty: $100.00 + tax
Learners (residents and MD students) / Administrative Staff: $20.00 + tax
Registration fees will be used solely to offset the cost of logistics which include catering, conference rooms, and AV.
We encourage you to email us at email@example.com should you have any concerns or questions.
Workshops are to be selected at registration on our Eventbrite ticket page. Please ensure that you select the correct workshop on Eventbrite in the morning and the afternoon. Please download the links below to view the workshop descriptions.
