Have you registered yet for #ILCA16?
Hurry – the very popular Clinical Skills Rotation (now in pre-conference session) is filling fast.
We are excited to once again offer our popular Clinical Skills Rotation. Participants will rotate between skill stations in each two-hour session. At each station, participants will spend 25 minutes with an expert facilitator, who will provide a demonstration and support hands-on skill practice.
Clinical Skills sessions are available for beginning practitioners (primary session) and for seasoned consultants (advanced sessions). Two different time slots are available (1 pm or 3:30 pm start) to maximize the number of participant slots.
Attendees are asked to register for only one Clinical Skill Rotation block to allow sufficient room for others to participate. This is a popular feature of the ILCA conference, so register early if you wish to participate!
Pre-registration is required. New in 2016: the Clinical Skills Rotation is being held in pre-conference session.
