Description


The Lyme Disease Scientific Symposium in March 2012 was held at the medical campus in Winnipeg. As it is often difficult to attend these speciality type conferences, and due to the strong positive feedback for need for more education to front line physicians, this symposium will be rebroadcast in the Fall 2012. There will be 3 sessions, each about 2 hours, where the lectures from that day will be streamed by video to those that wish to learn more about Lyme disease.

SIGN IN BY SELECTING THE "SIGN UP TO JOIN THIS COURSE" button on the top RIGHT of this page.

For ONE full week for the next 3 months, these videos will be available 24/7 for viewing.  Each week will host a different series of lectures based on the Series Title.  These videos will become available at the start time and can be viewed at your most convenient time and setting. 

These presentations are available to MANITOBA PHYSICIANS ONLY
