Continuing Professional Development

Dr. Mohamad Ahmad, Director

Under the auspices of the Continuing Professional Development Office at the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry, the Department of Anesthesia Continuing Professional Development Program supports a variety of high quality continuing education events aimed at practicing anesthesiologists and affiliated health care professionals. Current activities include departmental rounds (held as monthly city-wide forums across London hospitals); weekly site rounds (held at each hospital site and designed to address issues and topics of local interest) and subspecialty rounds and seminars (organized to meet the educational needs of subspecialty groups e.g., cardiac anesthesia, neuroanesthesia, obstetrical anesthesia, etc.).

In addition, the CPD Program hosts several lectureships and accredits local, national or international conferences and workshops supported by the Department and organized by its members.
