OEMAC’s 33rd Annual Scientific Conference and OMA’s 8th Annual Day in Occupational Medicine
Intercontinental Toronto Centre, Toronto, Ontario September 27-29, 2015
About the Scientific Conference
The Occupational and Environmental Medical Association of Canada (OEMAC) conference is Canada’s largest occupational medicine conference and is attended by over 150 physicians as well as other health care professionals. This forum provides the most up-to-date information on current issues and research in occupational medicine. The Canadian Board of Occupational Medicine (CBOM) also uses this opportunity to examine and certify physicians according to the standards of the Board.
OEMAC’s Annual Scientific Conference will unite Canadian leaders, both academic, and on the “front lines” providing a platform to reach this important group of physicians. No other event in Canada puts you in touch with so many decision-makers in Occupational Health in one place at the same time. This year, the conference is organized in conjunction with OMA’s 8th Annual Day in Occupational Medicine.
