75th Annual Refresher Course for Family Physicians & 50th Anniversary of the Department of Family Medicine

Dear colleagues,

We are thrilled to announce the 75th Annual Refresher Course for Family Physicians, coinciding with the 50th Anniversary of the McGill Department of Family Medicine.
Mark your calendars for an extraordinary VIRTUAL event from November 25-27, 2024, followed by the asynchronous on-demand Course from December 2, 2024 to March 2, 2025.

Whether you have attended for decades or are joining us for the first time, an exceptional program awaits. As always, a wide range of specialty updates will be covered, offering you invaluable clinical pearls to apply in your practice.

While this edition will once again be virtual, we are excited to introduce a new half-day hands-on procedures workshop in person at the McGill SIM Center on November 29, 2024. See below for details.

To make this milestone event even more special, we will also host an in-person "Connect & Celebrate" networking cocktail on November 24, 2024. Pre-registration to this activity is required and will be integrated with the Course registration.
