2023 Midwinter Conference


You are invited to join us for the annual IACOFP Midwinter Osteopathic Family Practice Conference!

The conference will be held at the Des Moines Marriott Downtown, January 20-21, 2023. Offering 15 hours of CME, our Midwinter Conference is packed with engaging sessions highlighting emerging research in osteopathic medicine. Sessions this year have a heavy focus on the DO difference in Family Practice and how to best take care of your patients in these ever-changing times. Our exhibit hall will feature the newest innovations from our industry partners and as always, there will be opportunities for in-person networking with your peers in a casual, collegial setting.

Don’t miss this terrific opportunity to learn and network with osteopathic thought leaders, family practice peers, residents and students, as well as exhibitors and sponsors. We look forward to seeing you in January!
