COVID-19 IMPACT ON THE review course

section1_head

The Goldfarb Foundation is planning the Review Course as face-to-face event (Classroom Version) with the Online Version also available.  However, if circumstances prohibit face-to-face events or large gatherings, Classroom Version registrations will be converted to Online Version registrations and the continuing education content will be presented in a live-stream format for all registered participants.

our plans

section1_head

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Goldfarb Foundation has been making the necessary adjustments to plan the Review Course to ensure participant safety is the top priority.  Without knowing what the requirements will be in January 2020, we are preparing for the possibilities of:

  • Required social distancing
  • Hand sanitizing stations
  • Taking participant temperatures
  • Mask wearing
  • Ensuring the current mandates from the Governor and Secretary of Health in PA are being followed
  • Working with the hotel and reviewing their cleanliness policies and protocols

Please check back at this page often for updates related to the impact of COVID-19 on the Board Review Course.


FAQs

section1_head

Many questions have come into the Foundation regarding the Board Review Course. The following FAQs have been designed to answer your questions.

Will there be a Review Course in 2021?
YES!! The Goldfarb Foundation is planning the 2021 Board Review Course with both the face-to-face (Classroom) version and the Online Version.  The Online Version has existed since 2006 so it is a tried and true option for virtual learning.  If circumstances prohibit face-to-face events or large gatherings for the Classroom Version, the continuing education content will be presented in a live-stream format. The same lecture schedule for a live-stream event will be followed as shown on the event lecture schedule.

How do I register for the meeting?
Registration for the Review Course opens on October 15. All registrations for the meetings will be accepted online and on-site registration will not be available.

When will you know for sure if the meeting will be face-to-face or virtual?
In a perfect world, we will have a drop-dead date that allows our decision-making process to dictate the best format of the meeting. However, Plan B, an entirely virtual event, will always be in our back pocket. If we've learned nothing this year, it's to be prepared for ANYTHING to happen! As soon as we know of any significant changes to the event format, we will advise you.

How do I know I will be safe attending a face-to-face meeting?
The current reality we live in dictates that the Foundation and Philadelphia Airport Marriott will follow the CDC and PA Department of Health guidelines for face-to-face meetings. Taking temperatures, offering hand sanitizer stations, requiring masks, and required social distancing may all be aspects of the face-to-face meeting. The decision to participate in an in-person event is up to each individual.

Why not make the meeting entirely virtual now?
It is the goal to offer our 2021 educational meetings in-person. We've successfully been doing it this way for nearly 50 years and plan to in 2021 as well!

What happens to my in-person event registration if the meeting goes virtual?
Should the event format need to be changed from in-person to entirely virtual, all registrations would be converted to the new format.
