Map and Directions

Dear Colleagues & Guests:

I hope that you and your family will join us at the 2018 Annual Chairs Meeting of the Association of Medical School Pharmacology Chairs (AMSPC) this February 06-11, 2018 in Panama.  As you know, Panama is a transcontinental country in Central America situated between North and South America. It is bordered by Costa Rica to the west, Columbia to the southeast, the Caribbean to the north and the Pacific Ocean to the south. The capital and largest city is Panama City, whose metropolitan area is home to nearly half of the country's 3.9 million people. 

We will be dividing our time between two locations: Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights (Feb 06-09) we will stay at the Gamboa Rainforest Resort and on Friday Feb 09 we will move to the Westin Playa Bonita Resort on the closer to Panama City...and a beach.

In addition to the “formal” presentations and discussions, we will have numerous opportunities to interact and network during our leisure time.  Scientific sessions will be held during the mornings so that the afternoons are open for you and your guest to enjoy the resorts.

January in Panama is the start of the dry season, and the tropical climate ranges from 75 to 85 degrees F.  Multiple flights are available from US airports to the Panama City, Tocumen International Airport (PTY).  Airport transportation to Gamboa will be provided and takes approximately 50 mins.  The Gamboa Rainforest Resort is a beautiful resort in the rainforest where the scenic Chagres River meets the Panama Canal.  The resort offers outdoor adventures as well as a relaxing spa and restaurants.  The Westin Playa Bonita is nestled on a beach on the Pacific Ocean and we have reserved all ocean-front rooms with balconies and at night you can see boats lined up to go through the canal.  

I hope you will be able to join us for what promises to be a most interesting, informative, and enjoyable meeting.

Michael Frohman, MD, PhD

President, AMSPC
