    Symposia Medicus always maintains quality CEU/CME’s and provides an excellent venue and production for education. The speakers were all well versed experts, the setting was idealic and the lectures were very valuable and pertinent to my practice.

    Symposia is my first choice in choosing a Medical conference. Love the destinations, the thoughtful free time and great speakers. Breakfasts and snacks are wonderful.

    Just returned from the Alaskan cruise for the Challenges in OB/GYN conference and I was immensely impressed! Learnt a lot from the speakers and the cruise was magnificent! Loved that the sessions were done on days we were at sea which gave ample opportunities for excursions at the ports. It was my first cruise experience and it was great! Thank you!

    I have been attending Symposia Medicus conferences since 2000. The conferences are always worth my time and money, providing up to date information in obstetrics and gynecology by leaders in the field in the most beautiful destinations. I try to go to one at least every other year if not yearly! It is a great way to obtain continuing education and taking a break too!

  10. Annie Sparks April 23, 2019 at 4:13 pm #

    I have been to one in Los Cabos and it could not have been any better. Great learning and an atmosphere of pleasure.

    Top of the industry speakers & topics in Amazing locations.
    They have cut away the fat so to speak in medical education conferences to facilitate maximum absorption & retention of information.

  20. Evelyn December 11, 2018 at 9:09 pm #

    Best conferences hands down. Attended several women’s health conferences in several different islands in Hawaii and I was not disappointed! Learning combined with beautiful destinations makes the experience priceless!

  21. Dr. Lee Bernstein December 5, 2018 at 5:53 pm #

  38. Byram Ratliff February 11, 2018 at 7:17 pm #

    Symposia Medicus has become my default location for CME. The speakers are excellent and always accessible. The locations are incredible and they always seem to come up with something and someplace new and exciting. My favorite has been the Women’s Health conference while floating the Danube from Budapest into Germany. The intimate environment was incredible. I left both culturally and academically enriched. Keep up the good work.

  39. Alice Cole CNM October 20, 2017 at 4:50 am #

    My experiences with S.M. have been very good. Loved the Jackson Hole Conference about 8 years ago. Learned a lot at the NYC, GYN conference, 2 years ago. No other conferences have been as organized or has the staff been as helpful as at S.M. Thank you!

  40. Linda Keeling October 5, 2017 at 3:03 pm #

    I have had wonderful experiences at Symposia Medicus conferences. I always return to practice with new “Pearls”to improve my practice. Speakers are knowledgeable and provide great information. Looking forward to my next conference.

The lectures are first class, designed for the needs of the health care professional to stay on top of new data and clinical updates. I have never been disappointed in the lectures or the location.

  44. Margaret McGraw March 10, 2017 at 3:55 pm #

  50. Eileen Ehudin Beard September 13, 2016 at 3:42 pm #

    I attended the conference on Integrative Medicine and it was terrific. The content was just what I needed and I loved having the conference in Sedona, AZ. I also like how the conference allow time for sightseeing. I am scheduled to attend a conference in the Cayman Island and can’t wait!

    • Maria Mayzel September 21, 2016 at 6:42 pm #

      Sedona was my first Symposia Medicus conference, but it won’t be my last! It was wonderful and the setting was spectacular.

  51. john vickers September 8, 2016 at 3:02 pm #

    The courses i have attended are VERY well run and very informative. I highly recommend.

    Symposia Medicus is the best. Symposia employees are always so helpful.
    Meetings are excellent.

  54. Katharine S. Cox April 6, 2016 at 12:15 pm #

    Great organization, very informative and worthwhile. Thanks for all your hard work!

  55. Gwendoline Fang March 21, 2016 at 6:58 pm #

    It was a wonderful conference in St. Maarten this Month. Well Organized with awesome material. It was my first conference and I left there very satisfied. Thank you

  56. Carol Lynn, MD January 9, 2016 at 1:12 am #

    I have always enjoyed the Symposia Medicus CME courses. The topics are fresh and up to date and very informative. The course locations have always been top-notch, and the Symposia Medicus staff make it so easy to enjoy the course and provide organized, enjoyable extracurricular activities associated with the course locations.

  57. Jennifer Gadoua, CNM November 1, 2015 at 1:37 am #

    Super excited to be attending my first conference with Symposia in November on high risk pregnancy. I love the locale and look forward to other future conferences!

  58. Juanita Garcia October 12, 2015 at 7:31 pm #

    Just came back from Woments Health Conference in New Orleans and it was the best conference I have ever attended. The speakers were informative, extremely knowledeable in their field, up to date, funny at times, and have never seen as many perinatologist in one gathering. Never was bored with their presentations. Truly awesome!!!!

  59. Janet September 3, 2015 at 6:18 pm #

    I am planning on attending the Women’s conference in Montana this summer . I can’t wait! It will be my first conference.

  60. Pamela Brodersen August 1, 2015 at 2:25 am #

    I look forward to the Symposia Medicus Conferences. They are quality presentations, learning made enjoyable and valuable information to enhance my practice. I try to attend once or twice a year, combined with a short vacation and feel absolutely refreshed and enlightened with new knowledge when I return back to my work.

  61. CARMELA April 30, 2015 at 3:14 pm #


  62. Linda Alexander, CNM April 18, 2015 at 8:57 pm #

    Great conferences and always well organized. I have attended probably 12 or so over the past and get the same quality speakers and sites each and every time. Keep up the outstanding work!

  63. Jeanette Norris February 26, 2015 at 7:50 pm #

    Great conferences, great venues, wonderful staff. One suggestion is to vary the venues. I like to attend the same conferences over the years, but the venues don’t change. I’m not attending a conference this Spring just because of that.

  64. Carleigh Burdine February 26, 2015 at 6:54 pm #

    My love and I eloped last year right before the OB conference in Grand Cayman Oct 2014. We flew down a couple days early. Exchanged vows on the beach @ sunset. And spent an hour swimming each day in the mornings. It was also the very Best week of my 1st trimester. Wonderful food and service. The island is Just Gorgeous. And the ACOG speakers @ the conference who were Southern were hilarious and engaging and dynamic and very well-researched.

    I came home Wanting to talk and share about what I had learned!! We also got reimbursed for our Honeymoon. And the whole trip was a tax deduction. No complaints here. We’re lookin into taking our lil one to Hawaii or St Maarten in the Fall for more. Well-done Symposia Medicus!!

  65. glorya matthews February 26, 2015 at 6:07 pm #

    I have attended a conference every year for since 1996 and have found Symposia Medicus to be consistently excellent in content. The speakers are generally interesting and expert in their discipline. The hotels are superior brands near interesting attractions and adventures. Always a delight, both professionally and leisurely.

  66. Christina Seeley, MD February 6, 2015 at 9:25 pm #

    I love combining a wonderful venue with learning. Great hosts, well-organized, all details taken care of. So enjoyable. Thanks for stimulating our heads and our hearts!

  67. Norah Nutter January 30, 2015 at 12:11 pm #

    I have attended several Symposia Medicus conferences over the past 12 years. The conferences are well organized, up to date and always very enjoyable. Thank you for making continuing education fun and painless!

  68. Pat November 10, 2014 at 10:39 pm #

    Anyone ever tried to attend a conference with symposiamedicus and they lost your registration and then tried to blame your secretary? Do they make it a practice to use smaller venues and turn numbers of potential participants away? Those are the experiences I am having with symposiamedicus!! Not happy with their less than acceptable customer service!!

  69. Robert Fast October 21, 2014 at 11:51 pm #

    I’ve attended many, many Symposia meetings over 35+ years in practice. ALL have been terrific. Well organized, quality presentations, concern for attendee’s needs. Have hardly used any other conference services.

  70. William Graham October 2, 2014 at 12:43 am #

    Definitely worth your time and money. You’ll be glad you chose Symposium Medicus. I’m on my 7th year in a row and I’ve never been disappointed yet.

  72. Amy Smith, CNM April 18, 2014 at 3:02 am #

    I have been going to Symposia Medicus conferences since 2000-I usually go once or twice a year. They are well organized, in great locations, have great speakers, and the educational content is up to date so as I always leave learning something new. I always enjoy them and look forward to the next!

  73. Ida Villanueva, M.D. January 30, 2014 at 5:58 pm #

    I attended my first Symposia Medicus meeting last month in NY. The topics were great. I am looking forward to attending another one.

  74. Hallie Lyon CNM December 13, 2013 at 5:02 am #

    I have attended several Symposia Medicus conferences and have never been disappointed. Always current topics, great locations, very well organized with fabulous speakers! I look forward to many more in the years ahead.

    Best conferences. I attended Napa last year.
    Katherine (Kat): I’m thinking about looking for CNM In California. Ideas?

  77. Pamela Gunter October 1, 2013 at 4:43 pm #

    We used to attend another company’s conferences but found Symposia Medicus to be much more appropriate for RNs. Also our “former conference provider” engaged in frequent HMO bashing and I work for a very fine one.

  78. margaret fraser September 10, 2013 at 6:18 pm #

    I have enjoyed your conferences in the past and look forward to more interesting topics and locations in the future. You are doing a great job. Thanks.

  79. Cynthia Miller September 6, 2013 at 3:04 am #

    I LOVE the December yearly Emergencies in Primary Care conference. I have attended 3 times and this will be my fourth. I just wish it was longer with more CME hours offered even if it was optional!

  80. Melissa Burkhardt September 5, 2013 at 11:49 pm #

    Looking forward to the upcoming conferences.

  81. Gloria Vodan September 5, 2013 at 11:05 pm #

    I have attended 15 Symposium conferences. I have tried other companies but no one offers as high quality education as Symposium Medicus.

  82. Charlene September 5, 2013 at 8:32 pm #

    Symposia Medicus is the only conference I attend, and I do so every year. The information is presented beautifully, by talented people across the disciplines, and current, relevant science.

  83. Roxanne July 12, 2013 at 3:47 pm #

    Have been to one in Arizona and it was fabulous. Want to go to more!!

  84. Mary Bragg July 2, 2013 at 10:11 pm #

    I have never been disappointed with the information I have acquired at the conferences. I try to attend yearly and the locations are terrific also. 🙂

  85. Dr.Charles Tietz June 16, 2013 at 7:53 pm #

    Your courses are super!!

  86. Glorya Matthews May 29, 2013 at 4:07 pm #

    I have attended yearly since I was licensed in 1995. Meetings are always in great locations, well run, informative. I like the variety of speakers, ie MD, CNM and NP’s. It’s good to hear different views from the different disciplines. These conferences always exceed expectations. I have also enjoyed meeting and having discussions with professionals from all over the United States. Thank you, Symposia Medicus!

    • Anne Neeb September 2, 2013 at 8:41 pm #

      I totally agree.

  87. Gloria Van Klompenberg May 29, 2013 at 2:49 pm #

    I love Symposia conferences, started going to them when I was still a resident. I love the locations, thinking about going to St.Marteen in Feburary!

  88. Jagdip Powar, MD May 24, 2013 at 4:43 am #

    I attended a couple of your conferences over the years. They have always been well run and in interesting locations.

  89. Vikas Pethkar May 23, 2013 at 8:26 am #

    The framework of the conferences is so good that I love to fly from Iceland to attend SM live conferences. Looking forward to the next one in Bahamas.

  90. Brenna Kerr May 21, 2013 at 9:55 pm #

    SM conferences are top notch, professional and useful. Looking forward to my next one in Nassau.

  91. Judy Josephson September 21, 2012 at 8:46 pm #

    Just attended Integrated Care in Women’s Health. Speakers were great and sparked interests in entirely new areas for me. I could enjoy a conference devoted to any one of their disciplines.

  92. Gloria Vodan CNM September 7, 2012 at 12:32 am #

    I have attended 15 Symposia Medicus conferences. Their topics and speakers are always relevant and up-to-date. I have attended conferences sponsored by other groups and they are not of the same excellent quality.

  93. Charlene Frey September 5, 2012 at 11:41 pm #

    I have attended several Symposia Medicus conferences and have never been disappointed. Always current topics, great locations, impecable planning, and fabulous speakers! Continue the great work please!

  94. Michael Smith September 5, 2012 at 4:19 pm #

    I have been to three Symposia Medicus conferences: Cabo San Lucas, Atlantis in the Bahamas and on Maui. They have all been top notch, at great reports, had excellent speakers, offer great side excursions and my wife and I always add a few days and turn it into a great private get-away from the kids. Looking forward to Sait Maarten in March. I am a fan.

  95. Katie Douglas August 29, 2012 at 1:58 am #

    I have attended several conferences with symposium medicus and have enjoyed them all. My husband travels with me and we enjoy the trips together. The conference schedule allows us to do fun adventures and it allows us to have a vacation trip as well. The conference syllabus covers applicable topics and information to keep me updated in my work. Mostly, we enjoy the locations!!!!!

  96. Patricia Thornton, CNM August 28, 2012 at 4:17 pm #

    I have attended many Symposia Medicus conferences. The locations are wonderful and I appreciate the ability to add extra hotel days at conference rates to accommodate vacation time with my husband. I appreciate the quality and timeliness of the speakers and topics. I usually don’t even “shop” for any other conference!

  97. Jill Pearlstein, RNC, BSN August 24, 2012 at 1:25 am #

    Looking forward to attending my first conference.

  98. Vikas Pethkar August 23, 2012 at 9:21 pm #

    I liked the Atlantis Resort venue last November and looking forward to the venue in Hawaii in coming autumn.

  99. Deborah Bates May 15, 2012 at 4:41 pm #

    I really enjoyed the conference last summer in Napa. The speakers were excellent and the location was wonderful. Was a little disappointed in the hotel at first but actually, it turned out to be quite nice. I’m sure I will attend another of your conferences.

    Excellent Locations and well respected faculty. I have attended four or five of your conferences and will continue to do so – your conferences are a wonderful mix of up to date academics and fun locations- always a great value.

    Continue to increase your topics and faculty to remain fresh.

  102. Carmen Johnson January 22, 2012 at 12:02 am #

    Symposia always does a masterful job with the conferences. I always learn something that I can immediately apply to my practice. The clinical examples and small group settings allow great interaction and dialogue. I can’t wait until I get the chance to attend again.

  103. Bruce Jung January 20, 2012 at 10:21 pm #

    Thank you for hosting these conferences. My wife and I have enjoyed the excellent locations and friendly hosts. We look forward to attending more in the future.

  104. DR FELIZARDO GATCHECO January 19, 2012 at 12:21 pm #

    I hope you can already provide details for the pediatric nutrition conference in July 2012. I have to prepare for it way in advance because I will still be coming from the Philippines. More power !

    • Symed Admin January 19, 2012 at 9:56 pm #

      Hello, Dr. Gatcheco: The brochure for the Pediatric conference will be available mid-February 2012. It will include information on the conference schedule, faculty, etc. Thank you!

  105. Tracy edwards December 14, 2011 at 2:25 am #

    I appreciate the healthy food choices offered as well. Too many conferences offer junk food. Thank you.
