“With 65+ presentations and four conferences to choose from, CHI’s Barnett Clinical Summit is perfect for both those who are experienced and new to the clinical field. Attendees can attend the entire summit or just the conference of their choice. The format of the Summit offers attendees and companies a chance to meet those facing the same challenges as well as those with expertise in an area beyond their own. Even if you are coming for one conference, you will be sharing coffee and some breakout discussion groups with the attendees from the other conferences. A lot of learning and value comes from these networking opportunities and discussions, so we try to engineer the flow and format of the four days to maximize an attendee’s time and experience,” says Micah Lieberman, Executive Conference Director & Project Leader, Cambridge Healthtech Institute.
