Exhibitor and Sponsorship Opportunities

On behalf of the University of Pittsburgh’s Department of Medicine and the Update in Internal Medicine Course Directors, we invite your organization to participate as a sponsor or supporter of the 2021 Update in Internal Medicine (UIM): Advances Changing Practice course taking place on October 21-22, 2021.

Due to the ongoing uncertainty around COVID19 requirements, and attendee feedback, the Department of Medicine has made the decision to offer this course virtually this year. Our goal for the virtual event is to continue to offer our participants a safe environment to obtain a comprehensive update on the major advances in internal medicine, while earning continuing education credits and learning from highly regarded clinicians, educators, and researchers.

Supporting the UIM post-graduate course provides affordable access to, on average, 350 general internists, family practitioners, advanced practice providers, physician assistants, nurses/nurse practitioners, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals. Support of this event allows your organization to connect with our attendees and increase your exposure to this specialized audience, including key decision makers. There are multiple opportunities throughout the two-day virtual course to provide maximum return on your investment. Monetary support of the course will be used to defray program costs, including guest speaker honorarium and/or travel expenses, audio-visual equipment, virtual platform, and other expenses, as necessary.

To confirm your support, please complete the Sponsor and Supporter Agreement form located at https://pitt.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_bmuewfh0p0WOdeu no later than September 17, 2021.

***As of this year, we can only accept checks for exhibitor and sponsorship payments. We are no longer able to accept credit card payments. Sponsorship payments must be received no later than October 1, 2021.
