Requests for registration refunds must be in writing and received by the Office of External Relations and Communications at least 10 business days before the course begins. The date the request is received by the Office of External Relations and Communications will be considered the cancellation date. Requests received after the refund deadline will not be processed. Cancellations are subject to an administrative fee deducted from the registration fee paid to cover guarantees and other expenses. Requests must be emailed to the Office of External Relations and Communications (events@houstonmethodist.org). The Office of External Relations and Communications reserves the right to cancel activities, not less than 10 business days before the scheduled date, if extenuating circumstances make it necessary. If an activity is cancelled, the Office of External Relations and Communications’ liability is limited to the registration fee paid.
