Frequently Asked Questions

Why was the Midyear meeting moved to a virtual meeting?
ASHP is working diligently to ensure that our members and all healthcare providers have the most up-to-date, credible, and trusted information available to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. As public health safety measures related to COVID-19 continue to extend, ASHP has made the decision to convert our live Midyear Clinical Meeting and Exhibition in New Orleans that was scheduled for Dec. 6-10, 2020, to a virtual meeting over the same dates.

We know that the Midyear meeting is an essential event for our members, exhibitors, and other meeting participants. However, the safety of our meeting participants will always be our first priority. During this unprecedented time, we are committed to supporting you and your colleagues as you care for your patients.

ASHP is currently working on a plan to deliver all of the important activities planned for the Midyear Clinical Meeting and Exhibition virtually, including educational programming, Residency Showcase, poster sessions, Personnel Placement Service, exhibit program, and networking opportunities. We will share these details as soon as possible on our Midyear meeting website and via other communication channels.
