When

Where

Residence Inn by Marriott Kingston Water's Edge
7 Earl Street, Kingston, Ontario, K7L0A4, Canada
Fee: $225.00 (Base Price)

Patients often go to their family doctor with seemingly simple or common symptoms.  Sometimes the symptoms are benign and lead to a relatively benign diagnosis but in some cases they could be indicative of a more serious or rare diagnosis.  How do you sort the horses from the zebras during a busy day in the clinic? 

At the end of the program participants will have an enhanced understanding of how to assess common medical symptoms that may lead to a complicated and/or rare diagnosis.

We will be using PollEverywhere so please make sure to bring your smartphones, tablets and/or laptops so you can participate in the program.
