Hello from your Continuing Professional Development
Committee at the NL College of Family Physicians!

Historically, we have presented an Annual Family Medicine Conference in October, which has been an opportunity for CPD, networking, and fun.  2020-2021 has brought a lot of change, not the least of which is the ability to attend virtual CPD offered across the country.  Though we had sent out a save the date for October 22-23, 2021, on doing an environmental scan we realized that Fall 2021 is full of local CPD opportunities, from Comprehensive Management of COPD for the Family Physician, and  the MyQ Faciliated Virtual Mini Program “Caring for my Patients’ Common Issues” through the FPRP, to DERM day, Health Innovation Summit, Family Medicine Forum, to our own ALARM course.  

So many of the options already available are meeting the needs identified in our Needs Assessment and so we felt it would be too saturated to create another CME event during October.  Because of this, and the awesome CME opportunities that our colleagues are presenting, we will be cancelling the Annual Family Medicine Conference for 2021.  

We truly hope that when we can get together for the FMC next year, we can create something special, allowing us to celebrate seeing each other in person again!

If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions for CPD opportunities in the future, please get in touch!
