“I’ve been attending CMED conference for probably fifteen years. I gain quite a bit from having a variety of centers here ranging from Continuing Education to Executive Education and coming from a variety of universities in Canada, US, Australia and other parts of the world. Also, the big benefit for me is to be able to share best practices with one another. It has been an excellent experience!”
