CRIT/ER: Critical Care in the Emergency Room

Check back in the new year for details on the 2024 Event

If you work in the ER on a full time, part time or casual basis and find yourself called upon to treat the sickest of patients at a moment's notice, then this conference is for you!  Join Directors Dennis Djogovic and Matt Inwood on October 2-3, 2021, and the University of Alberta, Department of Critical Care Medicine, as they present a weekend of medical education with a healthy dose of mountain air!  The rapid fire lectures with heavy "real life" clinical emphasis make for an enjoyable and entertaining learning experience.  

The majestic Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge welcomes our conference for another successful weekend, with the right balance of work and play.  The JPL has extended a block of reduced room rates (until September 4th) for conference attendees, please call 1-800-441-1414 to reserve your room.  Don't delay!

We are VERY excited to bring you a group of dynamic, practical, engaging speakers to stimulate your medical minds and make your weekend memorable:

Dr Janek Senaratne - Cardiologist, Intensivist, Grey Nuns Hospital, University of Alberta Hospital

Dr Dominic Carney- Pulmonologist, Intensivist, Grey Nuns Hospital

In 2020, we reduced our conference size and succeeded in a safe educational experience. With the unknown details that autumn will bring, we remain committed to providing a fantastic and safe opportunity for our registrants.  Warm individually packaged breakfast, physical distancing during our presentations and discussions, and other safety initiatives will maximize our safety.  Our dinner reception for now will be paused; but the aim for an amazing weekend of education and relaxation will remain.

***NOTE: our conference will be reduced in size and capped in attendance to bring you a safe experience. Book early before we reach our attendance limit!
