Why book your seat now for NEO or Specialty Review? If you don’t know these events, let’s review.

1. There’s something for everyone.

With a proven track record of success, NEO and Specialty Review both address important and timely topics in neonatology. At NEO, you’ll spend three days covering a range of key issues in neonatal medicine. Learn about new advancements, engage in lively discussions and look broadly at clinical and ethical topics. This event will not only enhance your career; it will also provide value insights that you can bring back to your NICU team at home. 


Block out six days for Specialty Review, where you’ll immerse yourself in problem-based and foundational review led by top clinical educators who are focused on one thing: preparing you for neonatal board examinations or recertification tests. While it’s going to be intense, we toss in a little fun and games with our coveted Battle of the Boards rapid-fire team competition that brings some lightheartedness, friendship and food into the mix. Plus, the best part: you can also access the conference materials after the event for continued review at home.

“Our annual Battle of the Boards has been a crowd pleaser from the beginning, and this year plans to be no exception. An evening of friendly competition, quizzing and camaraderie designed to help you test your knowledge, identify your weakness and prove to yourself you have what it takes to be successful!” said David Weisoly, DO, Specialty Review Conference Director.


2. Learn from experts in your field (and theirs).

At NEO, world-renowned speakers address critical and controversial issues in neonatal medicine that influence clinical practice of newborn medicine. At Specialty Review, neonatal specialists lead in-depth sessions to help facilitate effective board preparation.

“In our field, we care for our most vulnerable patients, and that takes a delicate touch. We are proud of this year’s cultivated faculty lineup, where we’ve handpicked leaders from across the U.S., from multiple neo subspecialties and all types of organizations,” said Timothy Biela, MD, NEO Conference Co-Director. “Our goal is to provide you with the full range of knowledge essential to take great care of your patients, every day and in every way, as well as build bridges with colleagues from the U.S. and abroad.”

3. Surround yourself in luxury this February in sunny San Diego.

Stay and learn in the same resort — this year in a new city and a new venue: the Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego. This hotel has a prime waterfront, downtown location close to the airport, attractions, shopping, dining and nightlife. When you’re not in sessions, enjoy stellar views from the rooftop pools, slip in a workout at the 24-hour fitness center or book a service at the hotel’s spa. It’s important to note that San Diego temperatures fluctuate during the month of February, and the conference sessions will be air conditioned, so please pack accordingly.

4. Earn Continuing Medical or Nursing education credits from a trusted provider.
