CME Hours

All other healthcare professionals must submit their seminar certificate to their licensing organization to receive CEUs.


Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.


Hotel Reservations

CORE-FDM has not established a room block at any hotel in Honolulu allowing registrants the opportunity to stay anywhere.  It is highly recommended that a hotel reservation be made as soon as you register as hotel rooms are sometimes very hard to come by in Honolulu and surrounding area at that time of the year.
