TAPA is pleased to announce that registration is now open for Spring Fling 2019. Join us Thursday, March 28 through Saturday, March 30 at the Franklin Marriott Cool Springs for 3 days of quality medical education. Located on the outskirts of Nashville, the Cool Springs area offers a wide variety of dining options and is a shopper’s paradise. Attendees wishing to take in the sights and sounds of Music City are just a short, 15-minute drive from Nashville’s downtown entertainment district.
Spring Fling is a great opportunity to brush up on the latest medical guidelines and receive refresher courses to help prepare for the NCCPA certification/recertification exam. This year’s conference will offer 24 CME credits (which includes the SA-CME bonus for NCCPA-certified PAs) during the regular agenda, plus an additional 2 hours of CME for those participating in an optional chest radiology workshop on Saturday afternoon, bringing the maximum number of CME credits available to 26 credits.
Tennessee PAs needing to complete the state-required 2-hour prescribing practices course can do so by attending this lecture scheduled for 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 30. Daily registration is available.
Case Studies in Chest Radiology Workshop – Saturday’s optional workshop will be a hands-on session for PAs to discuss the types and indications for chest radiographs, such as CT chest, LDCT chest, and CT pulmonary angiogram; review chest anatomy, including the identification of landmarks on X-rays and CTs of the chest; and identify common findings such as pneumonia, pulmonary edema, pulmonary emboli, interstitial lung disease, bronchiectasis, and pneumothorax.
