Official Conferences

The Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC Spring and Fall) is AAWC’s official conference. Our members receive a 20% discount.

The Spring Symposium on Advanced Wound Care will take place April 5-9, 2017 in San Diego, CA. No other wound care conference offers this level of education or number of quality sessions.

AAWC, SAWC, wound management

SAWC’s motto is One Vision, Many Faces, One Family. The symposium is committed to providing the highest level of clinical wound education with continuing education credits and information to physicians, podiatrists, nurses, physical therapists and allied health professionals. The SAWC also hosts a major exhibition of wound products and services for wound care professionals.


AAWC Podium to Practice Track

Each Spring during SAWC, AAWC provides our own evidence-based, patient-centered, multidisciplinary clinical track. Best practice pearls and tips are delivered that can be implemented as early as your first day back to work. This track will cover not only what to do to advance wound care as a professional practice and career, but also will empower the learner with the knowledge about how to do it. Be sure to take advantage of these educational sessions at SAWC.
