The 2020 University of Toronto Department of Family and Community Medicine Conference
The Future is Now: Family Medicine in the Age of AI (Artificial Intelligence)
We are pleased to announce that the 2020 University of Toronto Department of Family and Community Medicine (DFCM) Conference will take place on April 24, 2020, at the Beanfield Centre.
The 2020 theme will focus on the relationship and potential impact of artificial intelligence on the discipline of family medicine. What do primary health care professionals need to know?
This year's event features 22 hands-on and informative workshops, and many posters and oral presentations encompassing clinical care, teaching, education, scholarship, research, quality innovation, global health, faculty development, leadership, equity, diversity and more.

Registration Fee for This Year's Conference
The DFCM Event Committee works hard to ensure that our attendees are treated to a day of knowledge in an environment that is conducive to learning and the sharing of pertinent ideas.
Every year when we plan this event, we value your contributions to DFCM and we take your comments into consideration. We revisit workshops, include new topics and tailor the conference's format from the feedback we have received.
Organizing events of this kind come at a cost for DFCM and these expenses accrue every year. This year again, we will be charging a nominal fee to attendees and presenters to ensure the partial recovery of costs incurred for this event.
The registration fees will be structured as follows:
- Faculty Members: $50.00 + tax
- Alumni: $50.00 + tax
- Non-Faculty: $100.00 + tax
- Learners (residents and MD students) / Administrative Staff: $20.00 + tax
Registration fees will be used solely to offset the cost of logistics which include catering, conference rooms, and AV.
We encourage you to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org should you have any concerns or questions.
