More than 50 of Dalhousie Family Medicine's community teachers gathered at Whitepoint Beach Resort in Whitepoint, Nova Scotia on June 8th to 10th, 2018. 

The theme of the weekend was grounded in physician wellness with workshops focussing on navigating and teaching boundaries in family medicine, preceptor resilliance, and remediation and wellness, among others. 

Keeping with wellness and striving for a healthy work/life balance, many chose to bring along their families to enjoy the sun, salt air and views of the gorgeous Nova Scotia coastline. With organized activities for kids and adults, it was truly a family focussed weekend. The bonfire and bbq Saturday evening was a great success bringing everyone together for a casual evening outdoors.

Friday evening was spent celebrating Dalhousie Faculty of Medicine's 150th anniversary with a keynote address from the Dean, Dr. Andersen.

The next full department workshop is scheduled for 2020 with smaller provincial workshops being held around the Maritimes in 2018/2019. Stay tuned for dates and locations of upcoming events.
