Overview

The BC Rural Health Conference is hosted by the Rural Coordination Centre of BC and supported by the Joint Standing Committee on Rural Issues (The JSC). The conference offers accredited learning on rurally-relevant critical care and emergency sessions and workshops. Designed by rural physicians, this event is facilitated and taught by BC physicians and provides practitioners with the opportunity to network, share knowledge, update and/or learn new skills. Join other rural physicians and allied healthcare professionals from across BC for this rurally-relevant, clinically-based, and fully accredited CME/CPD program. We invite you to bring your entire family to hike, bike, or paddle the beautiful and historic Hub City of Nanaimo!
