Have you heard of International Society for Medical Publication Professionals (ISMPP) ? That's pronounced "Iz-Map"
They are having their 5th annual meeting in Philly. If you want to learn more about medical publishing and wish to network with others in this industry, then this might be a worthwhile meeting to attend. The ISMPP also offers distance learning via webinars through the ISMPP University for those who wish to learn more about the medical publishing industry.
The theme this year is: Defining Professionalism in Medical Publications: Transparency, Objectivity, and Ethics
The ISMPP also offers a certification program for those who wish to be a Certified Medical Publication Professional (CMPP). I wonder if that's where those in the CME industry came up with the Certified CME Professional (CCMEP).
