Free, online webinars for competence committee chairs

September 30, 2021 | Author: Royal College Staff

In recognition of the important role that competence committee chairs play in resident training and progression, Royal College clinician educators Drs. Warren Cheung, Dan Dubois, and Anna Oswald are hosting a series of free 90-minute virtual events to foster online learning and connection. These events are designed to answer questions, identify common challenges and share ideas in this new and growing community of postgraduate medical education leaders.

Each virtual session includes a presentation on trending topics and moderated breakout room sessions targeted by level and need. The aim is to contribute to residency training in a meaningful and collaborative manner.
