Satellite Symposia

2023 Satellite Symposium Guidelines (CEU)

The 2023 HFSA Annual Scientific Meeting (HFSA) In Person Satellite Guidelines provide a comprehensive guide to the requirements for holding an In-Person Satellite (IPS) at the 2023 HFSA Annual Scientific Meeting, to be held October 6 - 9, 2023, at the Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland in Cleveland, OH. 

Two Options in 2023 

For 2023, HFSA will be offering two options for satellites. The first option is for the satellite organizers to provide accreditation and the second option, similar to last year, is for HFSA to provide the accreditation. There are two separate sets of guidelines. Please review both sets of guidelines and determine which option is best. 

For questions, please contact HFSA Education Staff:
Kris Fridgen, Vice President, Meetings and Education 
Shauna Wheeler, Director of Continuing Education and Accreditation

IPS sessions are not part of the official scientific program, but they are an important component of the Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM). The educational content is accredited and designed to be scientifically rigorous, evidence-based, fair, and balanced. IPS sessions complement the scientific program by providing additional opportunities for participants to engage in more focused and in-depth conversations on new and emerging clinical options. IPS sessions will be held at the Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland.
