About the Course

The Annual Refresher Course for Family Physicians is Quebec’s biggest and most comprehensive annual meeting for family physicians, and is hosted by the Faculty of Medicine of McGill University.

The Course provides three stimulating days of educational opportunities featuring the latest trends in family medicine, including updates from medical specialists, hands-on workshops, educational fora, lunch and learn sessions, practical topics like Quebec's new fee-for-service billing system (SYRA) and much more. 

This impressive array of continuing professional development (CPD) sessions are designed specifically for family physicians to simultaneously provide:

  • Gained knowledge to immediately implement improvements to your medical practice and business;
  • Earn required Maintenance of Certification Program credits;
  • Allowed reimbursement from the RAMQ for participating at the Course.

Our extensive Exhibit Hall and networking opportunities will allow you to recharge and make new contacts and friends.

Update for 2016

 Dear Colleagues,

The Refresher Course was a great success last year and below is an update on the changes implemented that helped improve the Course.

Changes implemented last year and notes for this year:

  • there will not be a printed syllabus again this year
  • the program structure has been improved for better and faster agenda planning for the participants
  • better Wi-Fi infrastructure which we will improve on even more this year.

Core features that remain unchanged:

  • over 500 physician colleagues to network with
  • over 20 exhibitors displaying the results of their latest research
  • close to 100 presentations by specialists and family physicians
  • a comfortable conference atmosphere with healthy meals and exercise breaks 

We really look forward to welcoming you again this year!
