The Annual Medical-Surgical Conference is aimed at providing presentations to enhance clinical competency and to promote professional development. This annual conference is the result of the efforts of nurse educators and leaders from many local medical centers and hospitals in the San Francisco Bay area. Since 1980, this consortium has planned this conference, which has always been directed exclusively for nurses who practice in what is commonly referred to as ‘Med-Surg’ nursing. Nurses who attend this conference benefit from a variety of presentations from both local and nationally-known speakers.
