This year we’re proud to invite you to not one but two great events in Chicago on Saturday, Septemeber 16th. In the morning, NMPRA will be hosting their annual conference at the University of Chicago. In the evening we are excited to announce the Med-Peds 50th Anniversary Dinner at ZED451. Please see details below for both events below. Sign-up for one or both events below through the registration link below. Please feel free to attend one, the other or both!

First up, the 2017 Annual Meeting of the National Med-Peds Residents’ Association is hosted this year at the University of Chicago. Medical Students, Residents, and Faculty are encouraged to attend. The meeting will include poster presentations, case presentations, panels, and a keynote speaker. If you’re a student, it’s a great time to learn more about Med-Peds as a career choice, not to mention meet up with residents and program directors. If you are a resident it is a great place to meet up with other residents from around the country, make new friends, reconnect with those who you met along the interview trail, and learn some new skills.

In the evening the Med-Peds 50th Anniversary gala is being held at Zed451, hosted by NMPRA in conjunction with the AAP Section of Med-Peds and the Med-Peds Program Directors Association. The dinner gala will begin at 6pm and includes an open bar from 6-8pm, live jazz band including Med-Peds grad Dr. Onady, live DJ, awards presentation and so much more!

Celebrating 50 years of Med-Peds!
