CONTINUING EDUCATION CONTACT HOURS

The Midwest Podiatry Conference is approved by the Council on Podiatric Medical Education as a sponsor of continuing education in podiatric medicine.

Continuing Education Contact Hours (CECH) are awarded based on actual days in attendance at the conference lectures.  Each registered attendee is assigned a unique barcode which is printed on their conference badge.  In accordance with CPME 720; Section 11.2, the Midwest Podiatry Conference verifies your attendance by scanning conference badges twice a day in designated locations within the exhibit hall.

Doctors and assistants must have their name badges scanned twice on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday in the exhibit hall, and once on Sunday.

At the conclusion of the conference, badge scans are tallied and verified.  Attendees will receive an email containing a link to download their certificate.  This link will expire approximately five months after the conference, therefore, it is advised that you print a copy of the certificate for your records.

Should there be an error in your continuing education contact hours, a signed letter explaining the error (or why you missed the scan) must be mailed to our offices.  We will review your letter and notify you of the outcome.

The Midwest Podiatry Conference retains Certificates of Attendance from past events.  To obtain a copy of your certificate, please click here to download the Certificate Request Form.  An administrative fee of $10 will be assessed to all Certificate Requests.  Completed forms may be submitted via fax to (312) 427-5813 or mailed to:
