Join us in beautiful Marco Island, Florida for one of the world’s leading courses in Perioperative Management, now in its 33rd year. Click the headings below for more information.

Thirty million patients undergo surgical procedures in the US each year, and the age and medical complexity of this patient population is increasing. All these patients require preoperative assessment, intraoperative management, and postoperative care. Every year the body of peer-reviewed literature on this topic increases and new guidelines on clinical management are formulated. Because the breadth of knowledge in perioperative medicine, which includes the diverse disciplines of surgery, anesthesiology, cardiology, pulmonology, hematology, infectious diseases and geriatrics, is vast, many practitioners may not have up-to-date information that is critical to clinical practice. The curriculum for this course was specifically created to address the needs of clinicians who provide care for patients before, during, and after surgery based on literature review, recent research, feedback from course participants and the opinion of experts inside and outside Johns Hopkins.

Please take time to review the course schedule below. There are also opportunities to network and explore beautiful Marco Island. Courses generally warp up by 1 PM daily.

The Perioperative Management Course is an excellent opportunity to network and learn from your colleagues at other institutions. Attendees represent a number of the country’s leading academic medical centers including: INSERT

Additionally, a complimentary reception for registrants and faculty will be held on Saturday, March 4, from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. on the Palms Terrace. Light refreshments will be served.

 

“The content and speakers were all superb.”

“Lectures were high quality, timely, kept on schedule.”

“Every presentation had thorough extensive use of the evidence…I was astounded by the quality of the presentations in the short amount of time allotted for each presenter.”

“I appreciated its relevance to surgeons in addition to anesthesia.”

“I look forward most to ways to improve my care…There were several topics to take into consideration and try to implement.”

“Conference is in the morning so we can enjoy our afternoon.”
