    Family health practitioners in Kingston and the region will be able to get an inside look at what Queen’s University has to offer as the Faculty of Health Sciences hosts the third annual Department of Medicine Day on May 11 as part of its commitment to continuing medical education (CME).

    This full-day educational event presents an opportunity for networking with the numerous researchers in the Queen’s School of Medicine. Attendees will have the opportunity to sit in on a wide range of talks on cutting-edge research, for example in dermatology, blood pressure monitoring and stem cell therapy.

    Dr. Stephen Archer, Head of the Department of Medicine, says that an active CME program is crucial for outreach to practitioners in the Kingston community, as well as keeping physicians up-to-date on developments in research.

    The Department of Medicine Day is an opportunity to reach out to the family physicians in the greater Kingston community and inform them on new techniques and clinical programs as well as how to refer patients to the various divisions within the Department of Medicine.
