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 2020 Update in Internal Medicine (UIM): Advances Changing Practice course taking place on October 22-23, 2020.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and our anticipated requirements to maintain “social distancing,” 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, 300 general internists, family practitioners, physicians assistants, nurses/nurse practitioners, pharmacists and other healthcare professionals throughout Pennsylvania and the surrounding states. 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_8vIXaWl0wQ0ygOp no later than September 18, 2020.
