FAQs

 

When does the Biennium end?

The current Biennium ends on February 28th, 2019 so this year's Palm Beach Winter Seminar is, to the best of our knowledge, your last opportunity to obtain CE to renew your license. 
 

Can I register onsite?

Yes, onsite registration is available and there is an additional Pay At the Door fee of $50. 
***Please note that online registration ends
on Thursday February 7th at 7am.***


What time do I need to be there?  When will classes end?

Classes begin at 8am on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  Registration opens at 7am and breakfast is available each morning inside the exhibit hall.  Classes end around 5 on Friday and Saturday, and there is a buffet lunch provided both days.  On Sunday, classes are from 8am - 2 pm (really finishing at 1:40ish).  There will be breakfast provided, but no lunch on Sunday.

Course Handouts

Handouts will be electronic this year.  Please bring a laptop or tablet to access course materials.  Please note there is no WiFi available in the lecture hall so you will need to either print or dowload ahead of time.  We will be happy to provide printed notes for you for a nominal charge, or you can download the handouts here


What is the refund policy?

There is an administrative fee of $50.00 for all cancellations prior to January 25th, 2019.  We are unable to offer refunds after January 25th.

 

 How do I book a room at the resort?

 Please call resort reservations at 888-758-0945 and mention you are with PB Winter Seminar.  Our current group rate is $349 per night.  Rooms are limited so if you plan to stay, make reservations soon.  

 

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Parking is available at no charge adjacent to the convention space.  Overnight self-parking is available for $10 per vehicle, and valet parking is available for $30 per vehicle per night.

For our out of state attendees, Palm Beach International (PBI) is the most convenient airport.

  • Palm Beach International (PBI):  12 miles, approximately 20 minutes
  • Fort Lauderdale International (FLL):  49 miles, approximately 55-60 minutes
  • Miami International (MIA): 74 miles, approximately 90 minutes 

 

I'm a Florida doctor who took the 20 hour Orals Course.  Does that count for my TQ (transcript quality) requirements?

No, you can receive 20 general CE hours for the Orals Course on a one-time-only basis. You will still need to take 6 hours of TQ as well as 2 hours of Florida Jurisprudence and 2 hours of Medical Errors in the biennium that you take the 20 hours course.  If you used those hours for a previous biennium you will need your full 30 hours for this current biennium.
