It’s all about the learning – isn’t it?  Over 5 mornings, approximately 60 Emergency Physicians - from Canada, USA and around the world – will gather into a room for a unique, highly interactive learning experience.  Not only do we have some of the foremost Emergency Medicine educators in North America facilitating sessions, we have come to realize there is an incredible level of expertise and sophistication in the room that results in stimulating conversations.  And then you get to see the so called experts (our esteemed faculty), sweat it out on the bike climbs and hikes with everyone else.  Through the week, the group dynamics evolve, as we deal with the challenges of Emergency Medicine and the challenges of biking and hiking.  


Our formula is simple:
The best speakers + novel teaching methods + essential topics + engaged participants = learning.  Add in cycling and wine and you get to “wow”.

First we chose the best Emergency Medicine Educators.  The faculty are not only opinion leaders in their field, they are also highly skilled teachers (though their cycling ability is quite variable).  We chose our speakers based on who we want to share a glass of wine (or two) with over dinner.  The teaching and learning definitely continues outside the formal sessions.  Novel teaching methods are used that go way beyond an expert giving a lecture.  Along with clinical pearls and case studies, we will get inside the heads of our expert faculty and hear how they think and what they do in different situations.  But there is a lot more to the professional development of an Emergency Physician than merely having a lecture on “how to manage asthma”.  The topics range from “core” medical topics to leadership to education.


  1. To provide updates on topics clinically relevant to Emergency Medicine Physicians.
  2. To provide a forum for interaction, networking and sharing of ideas for Emergency Medicine Physician.


By the end of the conference the participant will be able to:

  1. Apply new diagnostic strategies and therapeutic approaches in their clinical practice.
  2. Recognize and discuss some controversies in the practice of Emergency Medicine.
  3. Reflect on opportunities for Emergency Medicine Physicians beyond their clinical practice.
