CAS ARM 2018 Program - Final (pdf)


Hosted by the New Brunswick Anesthesiologists' Society

 We are delighted to be welcoming anesthesiologists to the 2018 Canadian Anesthesiologists' Society Atlantic Regional Meeting at The Algonquin Hotel in St. Andrews, New Brunswick.

With approximately 9-10 CME credits and a low registration fee, there isn't a meeting that delivers more educational content for the price. Experience a weekend of high level CME with exciting activities for you and your family. The optional ultrasound workshop on volume assessment will offer valuable Section 3 CME credits (Royal College MOC Program).

This is our Atlantic meeting and with your attendance and it will continue to prosper. Without your support, our meeting would be difficult to deliver so we strongly urge you to attend. This year's Program is one of our best.

The conference also provides a unique opportunity to network with colleagues from around the Atlantic provinces. Book your time off now, our registration page will open soon.

The Algonquin is a beautiful venue, with a full-service spa, indoor and outdoor pools, a waterslide, manicured gardens and a rooftop patio. You’ll find plenty to do with the family. There is a complimentary shuttle to an award-winning golf course or explore the Bay of Fundy with shops and whale-watching excursions. 

Thank you to our Sponsors!

In addition to the anesthesiologist societies of the Altantic provinces, this meeting would not be possible without the support of our industry sponsors and the Dalhousie Department of Anesthesia, Pain Management and Perioperative Medicine. Thank you!
