Contraceptive Technology Conference
Contraceptive Technology Conference
September 23 - 25, 2020

Welcome to the 2020 Contraceptive Technology Conference! The conference will be presented on a virtual platform but will still offer the speaker engagement and peer interactions you expect at an in person conference. The virtual platform offers the added benefit of extended access to CE opportunities as well. Presentations will offered live to allow for audience interaction, but will also be available for six months after the conference, allowing you to attend concurrent sessions at a later date.

We’ll bring you up-to-date evidence, explore the most puzzling issues, debate hot topics of the day, and offer practical solutions to your most common clinical dilemmas. You’ll experience a variety of teaching styles: interactive case study discussions, faculty panel debates, plenary sessions and concurrent workshops. Plus, our authors and faculty invite you to have discussions with them: to answer your questions, to talk through some of your knotty clinical issues, to discuss the future of the field, and whatever you find helpful. 

We can't wait to see you in September! Check out the agenda here.
