Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre
This course is specifically designed as a refresher course for General Practitioner Anesthetists. Designed to ensure interactivity and time to socialize with your colleagues, we start with a Friday evening session, followed by a full day of lectures and hands-on workshops on Saturday. The morning didactic lectures will cover a wide range of topics which were chosen to respond to the needs of family physicians practicing anesthesia in smaller communities. The afternoon workshops will give participants an opportunity to practice hands-on skills. All are welcome to attend an end of day wine & cheese reception on Saturday as well.
Pre-Conference Courses include: the popular HOUSE Course: Ultrasound for Shock and the St. Paul's Regional Anesthesia Day.
