We're going virtual for the 56th Annual Family Practice Review Hosted by the Department of Family and Community Practice, Vancouver Coastal Health and UBC CPD (formerly known as the Annual Post Graduate Review)

This comprehensive review course offers an update of knowledge central to the practice of family medicine in both rural and urban settings. Committed to addressing everyday practical issues, speakers present equally on current and special areas of concern to the primary health care professionals.

Featured Break Activity

Gibson Somal, Personal Trainer - 20 Mini Workout during the lunch break

At our lunch break Gibs will walk everyone through a 20 min simple work-out that you can do from your home or office without any special equipment. It will be recorded for you to access after the conference. He is upbeat and his routines are easy to remember which we hope will help you hit the refresh button in the middle of the day!
