Governor's Message

The Atlantic Provinces Chapter held another successful Annual Scientific Meeting and its Annual General Meeting in Halifax on November 25, 2017. The educational content was excellent and was accredited for Maintenance of Certification.

The Friday evening events were aimed at medical students who had the opportunity to meet with faculty to discuss career opportunities in medicine. Saturday, residents had the opportunity to present posters.

Thank you to the Planning Committee Chair, Dr. Ian Epstein, and committee members (Drs. Pat Bergin, Euiseok Kim, Joffre Munro, Christine Orr). Thank you to the speakers and to all the attendees – we hope to see more of you at next year's meeting!

The six Canadian Chapters hosted a Canadian Doctor's Dilemma competition during the ACP Ontario/CSIM Annual Meeting in November. Eight teams from different Canadian universities competed, including Dalhousie. After an entertaining and fast-paced competition, the University of Toronto took first place.

Stay tuned for more updates and events. Best wishes for the holidays and the New Year!
