Join Us For Our 20th Anniversary Annual Meeting!

It is our distinct pleasure and honor to invite you to one of the fastest growing events in the Interventional Pain Management field, the American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians’ (ASIPP®) 20th Anniversary Annual Meeting, Excellence in IPM: Education, Research, Advocacy. This 20th Anniversary meeting is being brought to you in collaboration with the Florida Society of Interventional Pain Physicians and is in Orlando, Florida on Thursday, March 15 through Saturday, March 17, 2018, at Marriott Orlando World Center.  


In an effort to meet the needs of interventional pain physicians and other providers as well, we have created an educational program of the highest caliber, tailored to the needs of physicians, mid-level providers, and staff. 


In keeping with recent years, the 2018 meeting will be one of our most exciting, educational, and enlightening of any annual meeting we have held. This year’s educational events will include practice management, controlled substance management, regenerative medicine, interventional techniques, abstract presentations, a Resident/Fellow section for emergence into practice, and much more. 


We offer an extensive practice management session with multiple and intensive coding and compliance lectures. This session is ideal for physicians, but also invaluable for staff. Consider it a valuable investment for your practice. They will walk away armed with the information they need to better tackle the billing and coding issues they face.


The faculty includes experts in the field of Interventional Pain Management, drug therapy, practice management, and current affairs that impact you. Whether you are a member of ASIPP®, or have yet to become a member, we are confident that this event will provide the information needed to help you in the evolving specialty of interventional pain management.
