Highlights in Medicine Conference and Reunion

June 15-17, 2023, USask campus and select Saskatoon venues

With a unique combination of educational lectures from renowned clinicians and healthcare professionals alongside USask Medicine alumni class reunions, the 2023 Highlights in Medicine is dedicated to providing personal and professional development to our community.

2023 Conference theme:

"Healing Ourselves, Healing Our Communities"

Through education and discussion, this year's Highlights in Medicine seeks to provide support and solace in a time when the healthcare landscape continues to feel physician burnout, resource strain and increased pressures across the industry. By applying this multifocal lens of healing to personal and professional development our student, resident, college alumni, and broader medical community attendees will gain insights they can apply to themselves and their practice.

We are an accredited conference: Earn up to 6.75 MOC credit hours!

Attendees who purchase an alumni or guest registration will be qualified to receive credits. Presence at the lectures and research symposium are required. Those attending social events exclusively will not qualify to receive credits.

This event is an Accredited Group Learning Activity (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and accredited by the Division of Continuing Medical Education, College of Medicine, University of Saskatchewan for up to 6.75 MOC credit hours.
