Event description


If you work in the ER on a full time, part time or casual basis and find yourself called upon to treat the sickest of patients at a moment's notice, then this conference is for you! Join Directors Dennis Djogovic and Matt Inwood on October 4-6, 2019, and the University of Alberta, Department of Critical Care Medicine, as they present a weekend of medical education with a healthy dose of mountain air! The rapid fire lectures with heavy "real life" clinical emphasis make for an enjoyable and entertaining learning experience.
