CREF Virtual Conference Registration

CREF virtual conference registration is active for the international, interdisciplinary 40th Anniversary Cardiothoracic Surgery Symposium. This hybrid meeting offers Category 1 CME and CEU education for advanced-practice providers, nurses, perfusionists, physicians, and healthcare professionals whose work involves cardiac surgery, extracorporeal perfusion, and extracorporeal life support.

Hybrid Meeting Format

CREF will be offered as a hybrid meeting, which means that the in-person conference will be live-streamed to an online audience, who can interact with other online participants and ask questions of the speakers during discussion periods. Both registration options—in-person and virtual— are available to accommodate your needs and individual preferences.

CREF Virtual, Online Meeting

The CREF virtual meeting, live-streamed via Zoom, offers 34.7 Category 1 CEU credits and 26.5 CME credits.

If you choose to register for the live-streamed CREF content, you will receive detailed instructions for attending the CREF virtual Zoom conference, including the login URL and passcode. Just like in-person attendees, you will have access to the conference mobile app, which contains speaker bios, a detailed schedule, abstracts, handouts, and the CREF Program Guide.

Please note: Not all live content will or can be streamed, which accounts for the difference between CEUs earned for the live and virtual content. The mobile app will clearly indicate which sessions will be live-streamed and offered for Category 1 credit.

CME and CEU Credit Procedures

All registered attendees will receive CME or CEU credit, or both, equal to the number of hours they participate online. Certificates will be available to download after the meeting.
