Family Medicine Summit is the ACFP’s Flagship CPD Event!

March 1-3, 2019 | Rimrock Resort Hotel, Banff, AB

About our new name

Throughout the past 63 years, our Annual Scientific Assembly has evolved into what is considered the premier CPD conference for family physicians in this province. The ASA has gone through many changes, and our primary goals are to remain relevant and valuable to our membership.

To continue meeting these goals and to move into the future, we feel it is vital to accurately capture the essence of the conference as it is today. We are very excited to usher our ASA into a new era with a new name and look, Family Medicine Summit!

About our new look

The three peak design symbolizes the three mainstays that make Alberta’s conference so popular with our membership, Connect. Learn. Celebrate.

Connect with expert speakers, with new and long-time colleagues, and with volunteer members of your provincial chapter.

Learn from educational programs that are current, “hot” topics of the day, and seen in daily practice today.

Celebrate the achievements in primary care, family medicine research, and most of all, celebrate excellence in patient care and in our communities provided by yourself and your colleagues.

The peaks are distinct but, combined, while being grounded in our history, create a unique, truly Albertan experience!

Same quality programming

The Family Medicine Summit will remain the same in content, format, and location, and we will uphold our commitment to a high standard of quality programming.

Watch for the 2019 Summit schedule coming this fall!
