Conferences

Update your knowledge

Alongside various sponsoring departments within Dalhousie Medical School, we provide two, large annual conferences. These intensive programs, varying in length from one to three days, are designed to provide you with the most up-to-date information possible.

No matter what your professional focus is, you’ll find something to enhance your skills and further your knowledge. From our cardiovascular conference to hands-on surgical workshops and everything in between, our attendance numbers prove that they’re a worthwhile investment of your time.

 If you are a physician and wish to start receiving weekly reminders of all our accredited events, please fill in this form (it can be downloaded and filled in) and get your name on our blast-list! (During COVID restrictions, please return via e-mail not by fax -- thank you.)
