Program Description

Radiology for the Primary Care Physician is the first conference of its type being offered here in Western Canada. Attendees will have the chance to interact with radiologists, including two dedicated "Ask me anything" sessions with questions answered by imaging specialists in Edmonton. This conference will be held at the Robbins Learning Centre Royal Alexandra Hospital.


All ten session topics have been chosen in conjunction with a team of family medicine physicians and all talks will be given by MIC radiologists who staff both the city's academic/teaching and community hospitals as well as many clinics around town. Highlights include approaches to common neurologic, musculoskeletal, body, and interventional radiologic concerns. All sessions are specifically tailored for primary care physicians and include a Q&A session.


Participants will also leave with improved knowledge of the requisition process and how to contact Radiologists around town.

We cannot wait to see you and only have room for 100 physicians! Registration-$175.

On site registration will NOT be available
