2016 PERC Annual Scientific Meeting

2016 PERC Annual Scientific Meeting

The PERC 2016 Annual Scientific Meeting was held at the Fairmont Mont Tremblant in Quebec. The Fellows Education Day was held on the Sunday prior to the research presentations – this day was a great success with distinguished guest speakers Drs. Serge Gouin, Jennifer Thull-Freedman, Carrol Pitters, Janet Nuth from the CMPA. This year we introduced a PEM Panel discussion at the end of the day, 6 directors from across Canada participated in this dynamic panel discussion. Dr. Virginia Moyer from Baylor College of Medicine was scheduled to present on Quality Improvement but due to a massive snow storm all flights were cancelled. As a result Dr. Moyer will be joining us in Banff for the 2017 Annual Meeting. TREKK held a network meeting and presented to the entire group about their many successes over the past 5 years and what is planned for the future. The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons also held there subspecialty meeting while at PERC.
