FACET's approach is unique in that physicians from competing practice groups and hospitals come together for the planning and implementing of FACET educational programs. FACET sponsors educational programs at a variety of meeting facilities, including hospitals, hotels, conference centers and the internet.

Looking into the future, we continue to evaluate alternative teaching avenues utilizing the latest technology available and will pursue other learning formats if deemed the best format for an educational activity.
