    Does the Healthcare Design Conference + Expo offer continuing education credits? From what organizations?

    The Healthcare Design Conference plans its educational content to comply with the accreditation requirements accepted by most major credentialing organizations. This includes many AIA, IDCEC, and EDAC hours. Because continuing education requirements differ among state and national agencies, attendees should contact their credentialing agencies for specific acceptance requirements. Attendees receive CE credits for participating in the following educational opportunities: facility tours, pre-conference workshops, keynotes, and educational breakout sessions.

    To receive Continuing Education Credits following criteria must be met:

    • • Full Conference registration fees must be paid in full, and you must attend entire session (no leaving before the session is over).
    • • Attendee’s badge must be scanned by the room monitor at the start of every session. It is the attendee’s responsibility to ensure their badge is scanned. If there is no badge scanner available, a sign-in sheet will be provided.
    • • All CE provider forms must be completed and legible in order to receive your certificates. Conference attendees who do not fulfill these requirements will not receive a certificate of attendance. There are no exceptions to this policy. Thank you for adhering to these guidelines.
