CME AWAY® by Sea Courses is pleased to invite you on a 13 night CME Cruise on board the Paul Gauguin cruise ship. Dr. Carol Joyce (Endocrinologist from Newfoundland) and Dr. Pearce Wilcox (Respirologist from B.C.) have developed a newly updated program on topics that are both relevant and practical for family physicians, specialists and allied health care professionals. The program is designed to be evidence based with interactivity and attendee participation strongly encouraged.
Dr. Joyce will review the endocrinology issues that family doctors see in their offices such as thyroid diseases and diabetes as well as other not so commonly seen, but not to be missed, such as adrenal and pituitary diseases.
Dr. Wilcox will review and update new developments in asthma, COPD, an approach to chronic cough and other topics.
Dr’s. Joyce and Wilcox look forward to seeing you in French Polynesia.
