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.

The weekly Tuesday "Current Events" email blast will be wrapping up on June 19, 2018. If you are a physician and wish to start receiving weekly reminders of all our accredited events (starting again in the fall), please fill in this form and get your name on our blast-list!
