The 2017 TAPF Annual Meeting was held June 23-25, 2017 at the Orleans Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, NV. This year, the meeting was revised to incorporate workshops to facilitate interactive learning including a mock interview session. The new format provided opportunities to receive real-time feedback on interview skills and language proficiency. The afternoon session consisted of ten abstract presentations, many given by newly graduated physicians from Thailand. After presenting the abstract authors with their travel awards, the attendees ended the day with a delicious dinner at a local Thai restaurant. Thank you to everybody for your participation and for making this meeting a success. See you again next year in June 2018.
