ABC reserves the right to cancel due to low enrollment. Registrants will be notified of said cancellation no later than 4 weeks prior to the course.
The Course will be held at the Crowne Plaza Charlotte Executive Park Hotel 5700 Westpark Drive, Charlotte, NC 28217. A discounted rate of $139.00/night is available to all ABC November FPMRS Course Registrants. You may click the link below or call the hotel directly at 1-877-270-1393 to make your reservation.
Breakfast and lunch are included in your registration, Friday through Sunday. There will also be afternoon snacks and beverage service throughout the day. ABC does not provide dinner, however, there are a number of restaurants in the hotel, room service, and transportation to nearby restaurants can be arranged with the hotel shuttle. Take out/delivery menus are available at the front desk. If you have special dietary requests, such as vegetarian, please email Kelly Friesen (below) so we can work with the hotel now to fulfill these for you.
During the afternoon sessions, attendees will have the opportunity to present their “nightmare” case or problem situation to the group and have them assist in coming up with the best defense strategy. We use this as a way to stimulate group discussion about how to prepare the case list and how to think like an examiner. In prior years, this has been one of the most popular portions of the course! Faculty will provide feedback at the end. Please type in the information directly from your case list into the template (Download the Office Template or the Surgical Cases Template). Be sure to include your name and then email your case directly to Jennifer Hastings at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A reminder that you will receive a binder and we will provide a carrying bag to make it easy to transport while at the course. Also, we will have contents of the course binder available to purchase on a flash drive. The cost of the flash drive is $45 and will contain both a pdf and word document file. We have provided a link to the thumb drive product page
