Overview

NOTICE: The 5th Annual UBC Heart Failure Symposium IS CANCELLED 

We expect that you will not be surprised to learn that we have cancelled the 5th Annual UBC Heart Failure Symposium, planned for Vancouver BC - June 12-13, 2020.  
This is a disappointing but prudent decision as the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve rapidly, and no one can confidently predict where we will be in the outbreak by June. The safety and well-being of our learners and their patients is our top priority.
A full refund will be issued to all registered participants. Please note that due to the volume of refunds that we are processing it could take up to 12 weeks to receive your refund. We apologize for any inconvenience.

We hope that you and your communities stay safe and healthy. 

If you have any questions, please contact cpd.info@ubc.ca.
