The past few months have changed the way we do many things, including the way we meet for CPD. As we head into Fall, we are excited to offer several digital CPD programs and conferences. The digital delivery of offerings will allow you to learn and engage from anywhere. You can network online with other participants and speakers between sessions, and no need to worry about missing out on a session as you can view recordings of sessions you were unable to attend.

The updates, programs and conferences offered this Fall will cover topics that include designing and delivering effective CPD, neurology for the non-neurologist, breast pathology, Indigenous health and much more! The Fall Schedule is listed below:
