2024 Symposium and Banquet

Feel free to join us on Friday, March 1 for CME event. Starts @ 6PM. This year CME is being presented by Dr Phil Simpson and Dr Rich Currie. Dinner will be provided, limited to 150 attendees, first come basis.

This years event:


Test your knowledge of the latest practice-changing studies and guidelines in a game of medical Jeopardy!  First round will be open to everyone to participate (via phone app), in teams of your choosing.  The top three teams will then proceed to a second, more traditional round of Jeopardy to compete for the Grand Prize under the intense, ever-judging scrutiny of your peers.  Many will enter… only one will emerge victorious.


1. Test our knowledge of the latest practice-changing studies and guidelines in a diffuse range of medical topics relevant to clinical practice.

2. Use fun trivia to identify current gaps in our general medical knowledge, and demonstrate our fear of change by arguing relentlessly with our peers about why we disagree with the answers provided.  

3. Identify those trivia nerds on opposing hockey teams who simply can’t help themselves from answering every question, and memorize their names and jersey numbers to later deliver brutal hockey-style vengeance on the ice.


A native of Peace River, Alberta, Brian Skrudland won the Stanley Cup as a rookie with the Montreal Canadiens in 1986. Skrudland would play 7 and a half seasons with the Habs, narrowly missing out on the 1993 Stanley Cup as he was dealt to the Calgary Flames midway through the 1992/93 season. Skrudland would begin the next season as the first ever captain for the expansion Florida Panthers. Skrudland spent 4 seasons in the Sunshine State, highlighted by a run to the Stanley Cup Finals in 1996, where the Panthers lost to the Colorado Avalanche. After a brief stint with the New York Rangers, Skrudland joined the Dallas Stars, with whom he won his 2nd Stanley Cup with in 1999. Following another run to the Stanley Cup Finals, which the Stars lost to the New Jersey Devils, Skrudland retired after the 2000 season. In retirement, Skrudland has served as an assistant coach with both the Flames and the Panthers. Currently, Skrudland is the Panthers’ Director of Player Development.
