In the future

Our North Dakota Chapter Meeting will be held on October 7 & 8, 2021. It will be a hybrid meeting via Zoom and in-person at the UND Medical Education Center in Fargo. We will join the Society of Hospital Medicine North Dakota Chapter again this year. It is an excellent opportunity to expand our clinical knowledge and interact with fellow internists.
