Hear. Apply. Provide.

The ways in which you’ve taught technical skills changed during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, one thing remained the same — you need to access the latest research and information on changes to clinical practice so you can pass that knowledge onto others. Access comprehensive clinical practice updates, explore perspectives on common challenges and earn your CME with high-quality sessions, in formats that fit your learning style. Customize your DDW experience using DDW Tracks, including an Education and Training Track, to filter sessions based on topical areas of interest. 

This year, you choose how you want to be part of DDW. Attend in person in San Diego or join us virtually.

Probably my favorite DDW memory was the first time a postdoc from my laboratory gave a talk at DDW. It was just a great moment of pride for me seeing my trainee stepping up onto that international stage.

— Mark Frey, PhD, DDW attendee

My little corner of DDW examines the role of quality improvement and how trainees can be involved in that. It's something I look forward to participating in time and time again, and I use it as inspiration throughout the year to help me mentor trainees.

—Jason M. Brown, MD, DDW attendee
