Sponsored by the Entrada Consortium, Entrada Conf is an annual event that brings together faculty, administration, and technical staff from 12 to 15 International consortium member medical schools to provide a rich educational, leadership, and networking experience.

This conference has historically been focused on the technical aspects Entrada; while this important topic will remain as the “Technical Professionals” track, the Entrada Conference Planning Committee is pleased to announce that we have expanded and refocused the event to now include an accredited Faculty and Administration track. Physicians who attend will be eligible for continuing medical education credits in Canada and the United States.
