CBT South Pacific | April 15-29, 2017 | 12.0 Mainpro-Cs

Physicians trained in medical CBT report better patient outcomes, less stress, and higher job satisfaction (see). Take your three core modules in whatever sequence you desire. You'll learn to provide much better psychological care within your standard-length appointments. And you'll earn valuable Mainpro-C credits from the College of Family Physicians of Canada—wherever you choose to travel.

CBT Canada was federally incorporated 20 years ago, on April 2, 1996. Back then Jean Chrétien and Bill Clinton were in office. Celine Dion's Because You Loved Me topped the Billboard charts, and The English Patient won the Academy Award. That same year Indigo, WestJet and Pokemon were born. Fax machines ruled, and Google wasn't launched until the next year. 

The 2016 Vacation CME Catalog is now here. You can choose from a wide variety of destinations, including cities (e.g., Ottawa, Toronto, Vancouver), resorts (e.g., Disney World, Maui, Whistler), and cruises (e.g., Asia, British Isles, Caribbean, Mediterranean, South Pacific). All workshops are accredited by the CFPC for 12.0 Mainpro-Cs.
