 ABOUT

Bringing world-renowned experts to present the latest science, best practices, and newest innovations in anesthesiology and perioperative medicine.

We are a family-friendly conference geared towards the anesthesiology community at large (anesthesiologists, FPAs, AAs, trainees, CRNAs). We offer up-to-date clinically relevant content from internationally renowned experts and local faculty. Our entire program is MOC Section 1 accredited, plus our popular hands-on regional workshops receive Section 3 credits!

 

Our location in beautiful Whistler, BC, Canada is a skiing and outdoor mecca for adventure.
Our schedule is organized to facilitate both education and outdoor activity. Multiple social and networking events are provided, and include supervised activities and food for the kids too.


Join us in Whistler in 2022.

Can't attend in-person this time? We also have a virtual option available with live access to all lectures, including on-demand access after the conference.
