Something for everyone

The virtual friendly RMA21 program is here

This jam-packed virtual program is bursting at the seams with three days of traditional conference plenary sessions as well as an additional Speaker Series. There are over 70 sessions included in the six-part Speaker Series with content ranging from diversity in healthcare, mental fitness, environmental impacts, doctors in training and more. 

By going virtual we can now offer you this conference live and on demand. If a session you're interested in doesn't fit into your schedule, you can watch the session later at your convenience. That's a virtual conference perk we could get used to!
