What is a Pri-Med account? What are the benefits of having a Pri-Med account?
A Pri-Med account is an account that allows you to log in to Pri-Med's online community, take online activities, and register for medical conferences. Your Pri-Med account will also give you access to the CME tracker, which is an online record of your CME credits from Pri-Med and elsewhere.
Why are you asking for my email address?
We are requiring your email address for a few important reasons: 1) Your email address will serve as a secure log-in for your Pri-Med account. 2) Certificates will only be available electronically accessed through your account. 3) Email is the quickest way to stay informed about upcoming CME opportunities, including information on the ones you've registered for.
How do I create a PMO Account?

What do I do if I have a question, suggestion, or comment about Pri-Med.com?
Send a note to email@example.com. All questions, suggestions, and comments will be logged and the resolutions tracked so we can continuously improve the product.
What does NPI stand for? Why do you require an NPI number to register for a Medical Conference?
NPI stand for National Provider Identifier. Unlike email addresses, NPI numbers are unique and do not change. They are required by HIPPA for almost all medically related information or financial transactions, including prescribing and referrals; it therfore helps us to be sure that all of our attendees are active participants in healthcare delivery. Our grant supporters and trade show partners also need NPI numbers for their reporting under the Sunshine Act. We have therefore decided that an accurate NPI number is a minumum requirement for participation at a Pri-Med live program.
How do I change my username, password, email, or contact info?
Login to your account and click on your "My Account" link on the upper right hand side. In this area you will be able to update all of your Pri-Med account information.
What type of medical conferences does Pri-Med offer?
Pri-Med offers CME/CE conferences for primary care clinicians across the US, at both Annual Conferences and Regional Conferences.
Annual Conferences are three- or four-day events that feature multiple tracks of education, a large Exhibit Hall, and additional learning opportunities such as Industry Theaters and workshops. Currently, Pri-Med hosts Annual Conferences in five major healthcare markets: Pri-Med East in Boston, MA; Pri-Med Midwest in Rosemont, IL; Pri-Med South in Orlando, FL; Pri-Med Southwest in Houston, TX; and Pri-Med West in Anaheim, CA. At Annual Conferences, Pri-Med hosts a pre-conference day known as Primary Care Updates – where clinicians can select the conference pass that best suits their educational needs during the registration process.
Regional Conferences are one- or two-day programs in convenient locations across the country, allowing clinicians to access the latest clinical insights and guidelines close to where they work and live. In addition to CME/CE sessions led by expert faculty, these conferences also provide a chance to engage with local industry experts in Industry Theaters and the Product Forum.
Pri-Med also offers Cardiology Updates, a series of one-day CME conferences designed specifically for cardiology-focused clinicians. These conferences are delivered by the leading voices in cardiovascular medicine, including Course Chair Peter Libby, MD.
Do these conferences have registration fees?
Both Annual Conferences and Regional Conferences have registration fees. Fees for each CME/CE conference vary and can be found on the individual conference websites. These registration fees allow Pri-Med to continue to provide the highest quality education, delivered by world-renowned clinician educators.
Registration for Cardiology Updates is complimentary; however, registration is limited to cardiology-focused clinicians only.
Medical students and residents can register for any Pri-Med conference at no cost; however, CME/CE credit will not be awarded.
Can I receive a refund if I cancel my registration or if I am unable to attend?
We cannot issue a refund for the registration fee, but you can transfer your registration to a future conference of the same type.
If you register onsite at an Annual Conference for the following year’s conference during the promotion period, you can cancel your registration for a full refund up to 30 days before the following year’s conference date.
Are food and beverages provided?
Food and beverage availability varies depending on conference type, as follows:
Coffee is provided each morning outside the session rooms and water stations are located throughout the venue. Lunch is provided for all attendees on Primary Care Updates, the pre-conference day. Pri-Med does not provide lunch for attendees during the remaining conference days.

What is a Ticketed Event? How do I get tickets?
Ticketed Events are your chance to enhance your conference experience during CME/CE session breaks by attending additional learning opportunities, such as clinical training programs, educational symposia, non-CME/CE Industry Theaters, and workshops. Tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis, and you can receive a ticket for only one opportunity in each time slot. The ticketed process varies depending on conference type, as follows:
Annual Conference and Pri-Med New York
You can add Ticketed Events to your itinerary as early as eight weeks prior to the conference, either during the registration process or by logging in to the Registration Resource Center if you are already registered. Pri-Med will also email registrants to announce when Ticketed Events are available for selection. CME/CE workshops at Annual Conferences may carry an additional registration fee.
Tickets are distributed onsite at the conference each day from the Ticket Booth.
If a Ticketed Event is confirmed for this conference, tickets will be available during the registration process as soon as possible. Depending on remaining capacity, tickets may also be distributed onsite.
How do I view the CME/CE session slides?
Session slides are available free through the Pri-Med Events – USA conference mobile app for up to two weeks after the conference. Some session slides are not available due to the nature of the presentation or copyright concerns.
How do I claim CME/CE credit?
You must be present at the conference to receive credit. To verify your attendance and ensure access to the evaluation system, be sure to have your badge scanned upon arrival each day. At an Annual Conference and Pri-Med New York, the printing of your badge on your first day of attendance serves as the scan for that day.
You can complete your session evaluations through the Pri-Med Events – USA conference mobile app or by visiting the evaluation website shared at the conference. You have four days after the conference to complete your evaluations. Once completed, you will receive your CME/CE certificate in your Pri-Med.com account the next day.
