Worldwide Quest takes Medical Conference on the road

TORONTO, May 31 /PRNewswire/ — Worldwide Quest announced today, in conjunction with the University of Toronto’s Continuing Medical Education (CME) program, the latest in its Medical Challenge conference series — “Medical Challenges, Medicine at a Crossroads — a Global Effect”.

The conference will be hosted January 21st 2006 in Vietnam and Cambodia. This travelling, interactive conference will combine the exotic sights and sounds of Southeast Asia with the very real issues facing the medical community today.

A maximum conference size of only 45 delegates, top-flight instructors, and the endorsement of the University of Toronto ensures conference delegates are able to earn up to 21 hours of Continuing Education Credits medical doctors need to remain current.

The medical conference will combine plenary and case-based interactive sessions exploring international health, emerging diseases such as Avian Flu, health care in developing countries, medications and potential health threats to the western world. While not participating in the conference sessions the group will explore the cultural treasures of Southeast Asia.

The two week program allows plenty of time for participants to discover the legacy of Ho Chi Minh in Hanoi, the intricate temples of Danang and Hoi An, the chilling history of war in Saigon, including a visit to the Cu Chi Tunnels, and of course a visit to the legendary Angkor Wat.

Dr. Lorne Greenspan joined forces with Worldwide Quest to develop travelling conferences. Greenspan notes, “I started working with Worldwide Quest because I wanted to be able to combine medical training with a unique travel experience. It has been very rewarding to see the program grow the way it has.”

Registration for the conference is $695.00 CDN (~ $550 USD). Travel arrangements provided by Worldwide Quest are $2995 USD (starting in Hanoi) for the fifteen-day journey including first class accommodations and meals. Airfare from Toronto, return, is approximately $1900 CDN.
