Medicine Update 2009

Medicine Update 2009Introduction

The Division hosts an Annual Update Symposium, with an afternoon aimed at Specialist Physicians and a day directed primarily towards our colleagues in family practice.

Update 2009


On behalf of the Division of Medicine, UKZN, I extend a warm invitation to our colleagues in both Family Practice and Specialist Medicine practice to attend our annual Medicine Update, 2009.

As introduced in 2008, we will offer a special session on the Saturday afternoon designed primarily to entertain and educate those in specialist practice, though all our friends and collegues are of course welcome. The Sunday session will as usual be designed with the needs of our colleagues in Family Practice in mind. E hope that you will find the two sessions stimulating and entertaining.

This year we return to a commercial stting. Medicine Update will be held in the conference centre of the Suncoast Casino. We look forward to being comfortable and well-fed as well as stimulated to learn and share our experiences.

I look forward to welcoming you all in October!

Kind regards

Richard Hift
