MD Expo, the conference for Healthcare Technology Management (HTM) professionals, is headed to Baltimore with high expectations! The first MD Expo of 2019 was the largest one ever with more than 1,000 attendees and over 130 exhibitors.
Now, MD Expo brings its signature mixture of continuing education, exhibit hall, networking and fun to Baltimore. Hilton Baltimore Inner Harbor is the site for the October 17-19 HTM event! The conference is proudly supported by the Baltimore Medical Engineers and Technicians Society. Free registration is available for all hospital employees, military and students.
A new one-day workshop kicks off the first day of MD Expo Baltimore. Attendees can sign up for the CompTIA A+ Prep Course being held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday, October 17. This class is designed to prepare attendees for CompTIA A+ Exams 220-901 and 220-902. It is intended that students from this class will also take the Networking Basics lectures offered on the next day of the conference. When combined, these classes will cover the knowledge needed to earn a CompTIA A+ IT technician certification. There is a $200 fee for the CompTIA A+ Prep Course.
Attendees may also opt to attend the CBET Review on Thursday, October 17 from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. David Scott will once again review all aspects of the CBET exam. This year marks the 15th anniversary of the CABMET CBET Review. CABMET has helped hundreds of techs with CBET. Handouts (USB sticks) will be provided and are included in the $125 fee.
Thursday afternoon will also feature three workshops. Topics being discussed in the two-hour workshops include conflict management, communicating with the C suite and strategic planning for HTM departments.
The first MD Expo signature networking event will also be held on Thursday. The MD Expo Welcome Reception, sponsored by Medigate, gives attendees and exhibitors a chance to network while enjoying free drinks and appetizers.
The second day starts with an informative slate of classes covering a range of topics including cybersecurity, quality assurance, strategic planning and more beginning at 8 a.m. The education continues with several sessions starting at 9:45 a.m. after a short break where snacks will be provided.
