Professional Track and CEUs FAQ

Professional Track 2018

2018 marks the 7th year of the Professional Track of the Philadelphia Trans Health Conference offering comprehensive training courses for professionals to provide trans-competent services. The Professional Track takes place on Thursday, August 2nd and Friday, August 3rd at the PA Convention Center (1301 N. Arch St., Philadelphia, PA). Unlike the general community track which is free to attend, the professional track has a registration fee and a limited number of spaces available.
This year the Professional Track will host a range of continuing education and interdisciplinary workshops for professionals practicing law, medicine, behavioral health, and education. In an effort to promote communication and information-sharing across disciplines, all professional track workshops will be open to pre-paid attendees and will not be restricted to professionals tied to their discipline (although not all workshops will be accredited for all licenses, so professionals should keep an eye out for which workshops fulfill the continuing education requirements for their practice area).
