Coronavirus (COVID-19) & ASE Live Courses

The health, well-being, and safety of our live course attendees is of the utmost importance, and to that end ASE is closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. On March 17, 2020, the ASE Executive Committee decided to cancel the live ASCeXAM/ReASCE Review Course in Boston, MA, on May 9-12 and offer it as a virtual online course. For more information on registering to attend this meeting virtually, click here.

The ASE 2020 Scientific Sessions in Denver, CO, on June 19-22 is currently still being planned to take place as scheduled.

In consultation with our leadership, we plan to continue following the recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and state and local health organizations in the Boston and Denver areas. In addition, we will also be working with local health authorities at each of the venues to ensure that appropriate precautions are being followed. If you have any questions, please contact us at

We will continue to post further updates as the need arises.

We  have created a COVID-19 Resources page for our members.

ASE Course Cancellation Policy
At this time, ASE’s current course cancellation policy is in effect. As we continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation, should anything change, we will re-evaluate our cancellation policy at that time in regards to registration refunds.

Current policy is:
If you wish to cancel your participation in any ASE course, your registration fee, less a $100 administrative fee, will be refunded when written notification is received at least 30 days before the first day of the meeting. No refunds will be made after that date or given for no-shows. Registration for any ASE course is non-transferable to another participant or another course. In the event that an individual is unable to attend the conference due to inclement weather or chooses not to attend due to a health epidemic, ASE is unable to refund the conference fee. In the unlikely event the course is cancelled, ASE is responsible only for refund of the registration fee, minus the administrative fee, and not for transportation, hotel accommodations, or any miscellaneous expenses incurred by the participant.
