You asked, we listened!

The Department of Medicine Day has totally been revamped & we can’t wait to show you our new “face lift”!

Build your own CME day by selecting two of four different *streams of medicine and join our specialists as they present practical cases based on the most common consult requests they receive from primary healthcare practitioners.  Learn what steps you can take to assist your patients' needs while waiting for the consult or a referral appt.   Also, be among the first in our medical community to hear about new and exciting technologies, procedures and programs… and don’t miss the opportunity to “grill" our specialists during lunch!  Looking forward to welcoming you all to our 2019 Department of Medicine Day.  

Parking passes will be made available for those who park at the Four Points underground parking.

*The streams are the 4 different informational workshops given by faculty members in the following specialities: Gastroenterology, Palliative Care, Neurology, Dermatology, in which they will discuss 2 common consults they received from primary care professionals. They will go over the case and provide practical information on how to manage the patient and their symptoms prior to requesting a referral or while they wait for the referral. The sessions will be offered in the morning and then repeated in the afternoon, allowing for the attendees to attend two of the four speciality streams. Spaces are limited in each session.
