Tucson Hospitals Medical Education Program

2021 NOTE

The Telluride THMEP Winter Conference is happening for 2021. We want to assure all attendees and speakers that The Peaks will be hosting our event again this year. The hotel and the ski area have committed to taking all possible precautions to ensure a safe environment. We are in discussions currently regarding the option for a virtual format if a large group setting is not feasible for the lectures. Be assured that we will be making adjustments as required, and we get closer to 2021. Please make your hotel reservations now, since we are nearly reaching capacity in our lodging venues. 
The registration fees will remain unchanged and we will adjust or refund a portion, if we are unable to provide all of the meals and social gatherings. This will be determined as we get closer to the event.

2021 Winter Medical Conference

43rd Annual

February 25-27, 2021


This is an open invitation offered to anyone interested in joining many of their friends and neighbors in the Tucson community over Rodeo days in the mountains of Telluride, Colorado.  We have also extended the conference in recent years to include many guests from around the nation. Great rates have been negotiated for the week of February 22th to Feb 28th,  2021.

The favorable rates  include discounts on lodging, ski rentals, and lift tickets.  The ski-in/out lodging options are detailed in the links and include a 4 star resort with world class spa,  as well as The Mountain Lodge, with condos and cabins.  Both accommodations are located in the town of Mountain Village at 9500 ft elevation.



This conference will focus on recent advances in diagnosis and treatment of medical, dental and surgical diseases. The presentations, which will cover a broad range of subjects, are designed to enhance the participants' knowledge in their area of expertise while providing a broad overview of allied areas, in order to improve patient care.


  THMEP is accredited by the Arizona Medical Association to sponsor continuing medical education for physicians. This conference is under application for CME through THMEP.
