Now in its 14th year and continually growing, FMF focuses on providing its thousands of attendees with three days of practical and thought-provoking professional development via several streams of continuing professional development (CPD) sessions.

In addition, FMF offers many special scheduled events and other informal social opportunities to recharge and network with peers and colleagues.

This year, FMF is being co-hosted by the Collège québécois des médecins de famille (CQMF).

We are very excited to be participating again this year!! Come and join us for our seminar,Untangling the helix: genomics for primary care providers.  We will use a primary care case-based approach to discuss new advances in genomics and how they impact practice. Cases will include pediatrics (developmental delay/autism, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy/sudden death) and adult (Alzheimer disease, Factor V Leiden, multiple sclerosis) conditions.  There will be time for a question and answer session so bring your clinical genetics questions.   The seminar will be delivered by family physician, Dr. June Carroll, geneticist, Dr. Judith Allanson, and genetic counsellor, Ms.  Shawna Morrison.
