TAPA is excited to return to the western side of our state to bring CME programming to PAs and students in west Tennessee. The last time TAPA was in Memphis was 2020, and that conference was disrupted by COVID. So, we are hoping for a robust conference this year and can’t wait to catch up with old friends and meet new ones!
Registration is now open, and we hope you’ll join us Friday, April 14 and Saturday, April 15 at the Hilton Memphis for two days of quality medical education. Located on the outskirts of town, the Hilton Memphis has plenty of shopping and restaurants located close to the hotel.
If you haven’t visited Memphis lately, you are missing out! Famous food critic and host of “Good Eats”, Alton Brown has called Memphis the best place in the country for food. With staples like the 109-year-old grease at Dyer’s and the 24-hour Gibson’s Donuts, who can blame him? And don’t forget the delicious Memphis barbecue served at legendary restaurants like The Rendezvous and Central BBQ.
Memphis has great entertainment venues offering live music, a restaurant scene that will satisfy any foodie, and many cultural and historical venues like Graceland, in the top five home tours in the U.S., and the Civil Rights Museum that traces the civil rights movement from the 17th century to the present. For animal lovers out there, the Memphis Zoo just announced they have two new endangered African penguin chicks and a sea lion that predicts the winner of the Liberty Bowl. Whatever your interests during your free time, Memphis has it. And all of these attractions are only about a 15-minute drive from the hotel.
For our west Tennessee PAs, this is a close and affordable conference that will allow you to earn half of the Category I CME that you need each cycle in one weekend. We can’t wait to see you!
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 is being planned to offer 25 CME credits on a variety of medical topics that will be provided in two formats.
The in-person format will occur on Friday and Saturday with conference attendees attending live lectures that will focus on new treatments, specialty topics and advanced topics. These lectures are being planned to offer 13 Category I CME credits. In addition to the live lectures, conference participants will also receive access to eight (8) hours of pre-recorded content that can be viewed at their leisure and is planned to help review for the PANCE. The recorded format is being planned to offer self-assessment CME (SA-CME), which is eligible the NCCPA’s 50-percent bonus, bringing the total credits available in the recorded lectures to twelve (12). Added together, both formats will allow PAs to earn up to 25 CME credits – this is a great value for your CME dollar!
