The long-awaited return of your favorite Maryland family medicine event is here! The MDAFP Annual Meeting & Winter Refresher – February 25-27, 2022! We can’t wait to see you all face-to-face again! We always have your safety in mind, which is why we are limiting attendee registration to 120 (approximately 30% of our regular attendance). Once we reach that reduced capacity in registrations, our online registration will close (walk-in registrations will not be available this year). 

We hope you’ll join us in-person this year at the Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Baltimore  for a weekend of fun, CME, fun, camaraderie, fun, approximately 20+ AAFP Prescribed Credits, and did we mention – fun! Take in timely topics you see and treat most often and  fantastic optional Pre-conference and KSA, as well as networking opportunities, it’s like a big family medicine reunion, and we want you to be there!

NOTE: If the situation changes and we’re unable to hold the meeting in person, we will move to a live virtual meeting during the same time at no extra charge.
