About Scientific Symposiums International
Nineteen years and still going strong, Scientific Symposiums International has provided continuing medical education courses to more than 4,500 physicians and healthcare providers from around the world since the company’s founding in 1994.
Based on the premise by Founders James L. Bennington, M.D. and Carol A. Haag that a continuing medical education program need not be dry or held in a dreary setting to qualify as a worthwhile learning experience, Scientific Symposiums International held its first yearly course in 1995 at the Mauna Kea Resort on the Big Island of Hawaii. Since then, six-to-seven new courses are held each year in Surgical Pathology and Dermatopathology on the Hawaiian Islands, South Carolina and California.
Scientific Symposiums International’s approach is simple. Courses are designed to provide stimulating, up-to-date reviews on topics of critical interest to practicing Surgical Pathologists and Dermatopathologists. Lectures are presented in an informal, relaxed setting by excellent speakers who are internationally recognized as experts in their fields. And, when the work is done, there is time to enjoy the scenery at these premier resorts and locations.
