RCCbc’s annual BC Rural Health Conference (RHC) is more than just continuing medical education—it’s about connecting rurally based colleagues and fostering community and collaboration. This highly anticipated event is a favourite for rural doctors across British Columbia.
Although CME is a major component of the BC Rural Health Conference, the biggest advantage to attending this event is the chance to reconnect with rural health colleagues during the conference and its numerous social and networking events.Dr. Nicole Ebert, Lead, BC Rural Health Conference
Thank you for joining us at the 2023 BC RHC!
The highly anticipated RCCbc’s 2023 BC Rural Health Conference was a resounding success at the Westin Resort and Spa in picturesque Whistler from June 2–4, 2023. Attendees were treated to a diverse program featuring over 50 interactive plenary and breakout sessions tailored for rural practitioners, exploring current and emerging trends in rural medicine. The conference provided ample opportunities for networking and forging connections with fellow rural colleagues. Participants also had the chance to enhance their skills through engaging hands-on workshops and pre-conference courses.
Mark your calendar and save the date for next year, as we head back to Whistler for RCCbc’s 2024 BC Rural Health Conference on May 24–26, at the Whistler Conference Centre.
