Club Med Ixtapa
February 3 to 10, 2018
Emergencies in daily practice
All clinicians, regardless of their specialty, face medical emergencies on a daily basis that often lie outside their usual field of expertise. Emergencies can sometimes go unnoticed and may have serious consequences if they are not detected and treated quickly. The scientific committee is proud to present Emergencies in Daily Practice, which brings together international experts from Europe, the United States, and Canada, to help family physicians and a range of medical specialists deal with emergency symptoms and pathologies. This will be a unique, multidisciplinary event, with something for everyone. A total of 15 hours of CME and a self-assessment session will be offered.
Club Med Ixtapa
Club Med Ixtapa is a hacienda-style resort on the west coast of Mexico, nestled between the Sierra Madre Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. It has a sterling reputation, and many describe it as the most beautiful Club Med in the Caribbean and the Americas. Club Med Ixtapa won the top TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Award in 2013, 2014, and 2017, and is currently ranked by travelers as Ixtapa’s best hotel. Club Med Ixtapa reflects the chain’s commitment to ensuring that all its vacation villages are among the top multicultural, all-inclusive destinations in the world, featuring stunning sites, delicious cuisine, and a broad range of sports and cultural activities. And of course there’s the Kids Club, a tropical day camp that offers some of the most complete and advanced programs for kids in the Caribbean hotel industry.

Club Med Ixtapa
The Club Med Ixtapa is a hacienda-style resort on the west coast of Mexico, nestled between the Sierra Madre Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. It has a sterling reputation, and many describe it as the most beautiful Club Med in the Caribbean and the Americas. Club Med Ixtapa won the top TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Award in 2013, 2014, and 2017, and is currently ranked by travelers as Ixtapa’s best hotel. It reflects Club Med’s commitment to ensuring that all its vacation villages are among the top multicultural, allinclusive destinations in the world, featuring stunning locations, delicious cuisine, and a broad range of sports and cultural activities. And of course there’s the Kids Club, a tropical day camp that offers one of the most complete and advanced programs for kids in the Caribbean hotel industry.
Club Med Ixtapa is a sports and culture-oriented paradise for the whole family, a cozy complex of 300 rooms, with accommodation tailored to families, couples, and single guests. It features a stylish, innovative take on traditional Spanish architecture, with a refined, up-to-date design. You’ll love its spectacular gardens filled with bougainvillea, mango trees, and coconut palms and its stunning 800-metre-long beach of fine, golden sand.
Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo, which are about five hours by plane from Toronto, Vancouver or Montreal, are two very different towns, only 6.5 km apart. For many years, Ixtapa was simply a coconut plantation. Today it’s home to luxury hotels, hotel complexes, fine restaurants, and high-end shops for those who love to shop.
Zihuatanejo, on the other hand, is a small fishing village that has become a favourite travel destination for backpackers and boho travelers, who appreciate its winding streets and numerous art galleries and craft shops. Come discover its rustic palm-thatched restaurants where you can savour local, fresh-caught fish. Zihuatanejo, or “Zihua” as it is affectionately called, is also a favourite spot for honeymooners, divers, and travelers interested in local culture and the legendary serenity of its inhabitants.
When you stay at a Club Med, you have the choice of relaxing in the sun, either on the beach or beside the pool, enjoying a variety of sports, or visiting nearby cultural spots. You’ll have free access to the following facilities and activities specially tailored for adults and children:
• Flying trapeze school
• Water skiing
• Fitness, tennis, and sailing schools
• Beach volleyball
• Weight training and fitness room
• Introductory sailboarding class
• Archery school
• AquaZumba and Zumba
Kids and adults alike will love the family rooms, featuring two separate bedrooms and two bathrooms. Deluxe rooms and suites also have a play area for children. The Club Med Baby Welcome service, designed for babies under two years, includes baby care equipment in your room (cot, stroller, highchair, baby food jars, blender, etc.). Various types of milk and baby food are available at the main Club Med restaurant, at the centre of the village.
And of course there’s the Kids Club, a tropical day camp that offers some of the most complete and advanced programs for kids in the Caribbean hotel industry. The Club Med Kids Club is light years away from the video game rooms offered by other sun destination hotels. Club Med offers supervised outdoor activities, theatre, sports, treasure hunts, theme shows, trampoline, swimming, crafts, and much more. And while you attend your CME activities, your children will mix with those of your colleagues and create lasting friendships. It’s like a day camp in the middle of a tropical paradise. Your children can have fun while you take in an afternoon of training, enjoy a nap, go jogging, or just relax. You can decide
on the spur of the moment whether you want them to take care of your children at the Kids Club. You don’t have to book in advance.
