LIFESTYLE MEDICINE DIPLOMATE CREDENTIALING:  In December 2017, P-POD became the world's third conference provider accredited as satisfying the educational event prerequisites for Lifestyle Medicine Diplomate examinations and credentialing.  These requirements, formerly known as "In-person CME", and now renamed as "Event CME", have always been live, as opposed to on-demand, in nature, but as of 2024, virtual as well as in-person attendance does qualify.  All P-POD Conferences are recognized by ABLM and ACLM as applying toward this purpose.  Please look HERE for details about satisfying this Diplomate examination prerequisite in 2024.

SEE INFORMATION ABOUT P-POD'S "P-FLEX" 2024 SYSTEM
HERE.  It allows any THREE of the SIX P-POD Conference days offered between June and October to be combined into your own individual 22.5 hour registration.

FOR EXISTING LIFESTYLE MEDICINE DIPLOMATES:  P-POD ALWAYS COUNTS TOWARD YOUR MAINTENANCE, AND ALWAYS ALLOWS 10% REGISTRATION DISCOUNT.  For persons who are already Diplomates:  If you are using the Maintenance of Certification plan that requires 30 Continuing Medical Education credits in the 5 years after your credentialing, then all CME credits that are offered by ANY P-POD Conferences (in-person OR virtual) will count toward your 30 hour requirement.  ALL P-POD Conferences ALSO allow a 10% discount for existing Lifestyle Medicine Diplomates on their Physician or Other Professional registrations (using code DIPLM).
