Powerful Presence with Mila Naimark, President of Clockwork Talk

May 15 – 18, 2019


‘Medical generalists –bringing forward a brighter future’ is the official theme of this conference. Generalist discipline is the most important but least appreciated discipline in many regions across the globe. Evidence of the health-promoting influence of primary care has been accumulating ever since researchers have been able to distinguish primary care from other aspects of the health services delivery system and main players of primary care are the generalists.

Enhance your natural leadership abilities to teach excellence in Interprofessional Education (IPE), helping to build an IPE community of leaders in healthcare!

In Canada and abroad, government and healthcare sectors have placed importance on developing a curriculum to change the way health professionals are educated and trained.

Jun 26 – 29, 2019


The main theme of our conference is “General practice - the Human Side of Medicine“. We believe that family doctors have to work on human and personal lifelong relations with their patients. More open relationshiphelps family doctors to increase the quality of prevention and care. To take care of our patients is more than just to diagnose them and to treat them. It also means tailoring the diagnostic process and treatment to the needs of our patients, avoiding overdiagnosing and overtreatment.
