Rural Videoconference Series

September 10, 2019 - May 26, 2020

Tuesdays from 8:00 A.M. - 9:00 A.M. MST

This course offers a series of weekly, one-hour educational sessions presented by clinical experts via videoconference. Each presentation is focused on providing up-to-date, evidence-based, patient-focused clinical pearls that change day-to-day practice and to help participants adapt this knowledge to their local rural and remote contexts in primary care and hospital environments. Rural health professionals receive this high quality continuing medical education in a collegial setting at their local Telehealth sites.

All sites are pre-selected in the summer before the next videoconference series. If you are interested in learning more about how to add your clinical site to this program please contact ruralcme@ucalgary.ca
