In order to allow fellows to attend without assuming the burden of costs for travel and hotel, the course is supported by multiple industry sponsors through independent grants. The sponsors have no input or role in the selection of the attendees or faculty, or development of the main program, which is written and organized by the Course Directors to the same standards as other CRF CME-accredited programs.
