Meetings and Conferences

The Department of Surgery and Division of Orthopedics consider resident attendance at meetings to be an important part of their education. Therefore, the former will provide financial support for residents to attend one meeting during their two years of Surgical Foundations as well as to attend one meeting during each of their PGY3, PGY4, and PGY5 years. Further, the Division of Orthopedics supports and encourages senior residents to attend the COA Basic Science course and the St. Justine Paediatric review course and AAOS review course.

In order to encourage resident research, if an individual attends meetings in addition to the foregoing with the purpose of presenting a scientific communication, the Department of Surgery will accept applications for additional funding.
