All Day

Western Canadian Neuromuscular Conference (WCNMC)

This is the 5th WCNMC and is being held in Calgary on September 27 – 29, 2024. The conference has rotated locations in Western Canada with the inaugural conference hosted in Calgary in 2013. This weekend conference is designed for general neurologists, neuromuscular specialists, physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists, trainee physicians with interest in Neuromuscular Medicine and allied health members from the neuromuscular community.

The conference anticipates 100 – 150 attendees. The majority of attendees will come from Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver, with a smaller but important complement of colleagues travelling from mid-sized centres such as Victoria, Regina, Kelowna, Lethbridge and Saskatoon.

This conference has been well received in the past within the neuromuscular community as an opportunity to update and share knowledge. The conference has not been held in-person since 2017 and there is much excitement and enthusiasm for this conference within the neuromuscular community to reconnect in person.

The conference will update participants on recent advances in the diagnosis and management of common nerve, muscle and motor neuron diseases. The format will be a blend of short didactic presentations with interactive discussions, international keynote speakers leading the plenary sessions and question answer sessions. Additionally, the conference will provide ample networking opportunities as the exhibit hall will be in the same space as all meals and include a robust welcome reception.

If you have questions about speakers, sponsorship or anything else regarding WCNMC, please contact  .

Registration will open on May 20th, 2024
