R&R Planning Committee

Our 2024 co-chairs for the 31st Annual Rural and Remote Medicine Conference, scheduled for April 18‑20, 2024, in Edmonton, Alberta, are Drs. Kyle Sue-Milne from Edmonton, Alberta, and Jared from Calgary, Alberta. The SRPC R&R Planning Committee is tasked with organizing the growing and dynamic Rural & Remote Medicine Conference. With over 1,000 participants, it stands as one of the largest rural medicine conferences globally. Renowned for its excellent peer-to-peer teaching and hands-on workshops, this conference distinguishes itself by not accepting funding from pharmaceutical companies.
