The CAR Annual Scientific Meeting is going fully virtual for 2021! This presents a great opportunity for trainees to attend educational sessions, present their research, connect with peers, and engage with the Canadian radiology community.
Did You Know? Many Canadian radiology residency programs subsidize the cost of attending the CAR ASM. Please check with your Program Director to find out whether your registration fee is being covered by your program.
This year our Annual Scientific Meeting is devoting an entire day of content geared for trainees. Kicking off with an opening plenary, the day will also include an MSK bootcamp and Hot Seats review sessions. Later that evening, trainees are invited to take part in a Speed Mentorship Program (waiting list) and Virtual Party.
Opening Plenary: Practical Promotion of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Radiology
(11:00 - 11:50 EDT)
Equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) initiatives are an increasingly visible aspect of work and interaction in radiology departments, training programs, and professional life. This panel discussion brings together radiologists from across North America to discuss the EDI projects, programs, and practical initiatives at their institutions, as well as perspectives on how radiology has been affected by increased awareness and interest in these issues, and how it may evolve in the future.
Panelists: Drs. Emil Lee, Anand Narayan, Lucy Spalluto, Charlotte Yong-Hing
Musculoskeletal Bootcamp (12:20 - 14:50 EDT)
These case review bootcamp sessions will provide an overview of key musculoskeletal topics from shoulder and hip MRI to extremity trauma to metabolic bone diseases and tumors.
Featuring: Drs. Isabelle Dupuis, Bruce Forster, Zaid Jibri, Eric Pike, Stephany Pritchett, Adnan Sheikh
Plain Film Hot Seat Sessions (15:20 - 17:00 EDT)
In this group session format, cases will be discussed, and feedback given to individuals as well as to the group. The focus of these sessions is to demonstrate a systematic approach in reporting plain radiographs and allow trainees to practice their observational and interpersonal skills in the detection of MSK plain radiographic abnormalities.
JUNIOR ROOM - PGY-1-3
