The MPI-MD membership community and advisory council is designed to support and promote medical meeting professionals through education, career development programmes and resources.
"Medical meeting professionals operate in a very complex regulatory environment and as a result, this segment of our membership has campaigned for more specialised training and resources," said Paul Van Deventer, president and CEO of MPI.
"Since acquiring the HMCC Program almost two years ago, we have expanded our offerings to include healthcare webinars, the HMCC Refresher Course, the CMP-HC Prep Course, and now MPI-MD. We anticipate the MPI-MD advisory council and community will be instrumental in shaping our healthcare meeting education for years to come."
In addition, MPI has added more healthcare meeting education covering topics to the line-up for its 2016 World Education Congress (WEC), which takes place in Atlantic City this June.
