Annual Conference

Guests at a reception

Annual Conference

Each year, Doctors Nova Scotia (DNS) holds an annual conference that brings together physicians from across Nova Scotia for a fun-filled, business-packed event. 

The annual conference is a chance for physicians to develop relationships that they can leverage for years to come. It’s also an opportunity for them to help shape DNS. With many communities across Nova Scotia facing challenges with physician recruitment and retention, the gathering is a unique opportunity for physicians to share learned experiences and help support each other.
