2023 Highlights in Medicine Conference and Reunion

With a unique combination of educational lectures from renowned clinicians and healthcare professionals alongside USask Medicine alumni class reunions, the 2023 Highlights in Medicine Conference and Reunion is dedicated to providing personal and professional development to our community.

Through education and discussion, this year's Highlights in Medicine seeks to provide support and solace in a time when the healthcare landscape continues to feel physician burnout, resource strain and increased pressures across the industry. By applying this multifocal lens of healing to personal and professional development our student, resident, college alumni, and broader medical community attendees will gain insights they can apply to themselves and their practice.
