The week before the Fall Course, all paid registrants will receive a link to the online syllabus. From there, you can view and download PDF copies of all slides & handouts. We recommend downloading and/or printing all slides BEFORE you travel to the hotel, just in case there are technical issues with connecting to the onsite WiFi.
There is going to be a lot of useful information presented, so you will want to bring something to take notes with, like a notepad and pen, or your tablet/laptop. If you prefer to print out the slides and take notes on them, please do so BEFORE traveling to the course to avoid any potential issues with connecting to the onsite WiFi.
Attire for the course is business casual. Please keep in mind that it can get cold in the meeting rooms, so try to dress in layers or bring a sweater/jacket with you. The average day time temperature in Scottsdale is 86° F, and can get down to 54° F at night.
Lunch is included on Thursday, Friday and Saturday of the course. Breakfast is included Friday and Saturday morning. If you are registered for the optional Vulvoscopy Course on Sunday, breakfast and lunch are included in that fee. All meals and breaks are budgeted for registered attendees only!

Complete the online membership application and our office will reach out to you once it is received. Please note, if a registration is received for the member rate without a new membership application pending, our office will reach out to you to pay the remaining balance for non-member registration.
