47 Years Educating and Informing Infectious Disease Professionals

2021 Annual Meeting Update

November 12, 2020

Dear Remington Winter Course Faculty, Attendees, Fellows and Corporate partners,

First, thank you for your support of the Remington Winter Course in Infectious Diseases over the last 46 years.    The long-term success of this course has always been both its content and its interactive and social spirit. It would not be that way without every one of you.

As we monitored the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic we initially hoped we could have a physically distanced, live Annual Meeting in February.  However, we soon realized that would not be possible and shifted to a virtual format in the February time frame.  Now, as we are entering the third surge of the pandemic, we have concluded that in all likelihood we will be too pre-occupied for even a virtual meeting during February.

During our recent planning meeting, we decided to push the 47th Remington Winter Course in Infectious Diseases (offered virtually) into the late spring of 2021.  We envision a series of 2 – 3 days of content offered in 2-hour increments.  The format will include didactic presentations with live question and answer forums as well as our popular case presentations in a live, virtual format.

Looking forward to 2022, we are planning to return to The Grand Hyatt Vail during the week of February 13 – 18, 2022. Detailed  information will be at  www.wintercourse.org as it becomes available.

Registration information for the Spring 2021 Virtual Annual Meeting will be available in late January 2021 at www.wintercourse.org. You can be added to our notification list to receive all Remington Winter Course Updates in your email box by clicking here.

Best wishes and stay safe,

The Remington Winter Course Board of Directors
