Virtual Trainee Day:
Thursday, April 27,2023 from 10:00 - 15:45 EST
A full day of virtual events tailored for radiology trainees will kick off CAR 2023! Trainee Day is a great opportunity for fellows, residents, and medical students alike to explore high-quality content designed and curated to equip them with the knowledge and skills to support their radiology journey. Trainees can connect with their peers and network with members of the radiology community while engaging in a variety of interactive sessions and topics.
Did You Know? Many Canadian radiology residency & fellowship 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.
Trainee Day will open on Thursday morning with a plenary session discussing the national orientation and transition to Competence by Design, the competency-based medical education for residency training developed by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
Jumpstarting the clinical programming will take trainees throughout the body with a series of educational sessions Pearls and Pitfalls from Head to Toe, covering a variety of imaging modalities as well as common and important abnormalities including chest, MSK, gastrointestinal, neuro and more.
After a quick break, A Day in the Life will bring together radiology professionals from different practice settings across Canada to share their expertise, experiences and provide insight into a career in radiology.
Rounding out the program will be the popular Junior and Senior Hot Seat review sessions, which help to provide trainees with a foundation for approaching cases, replicating the ‘on-call’ experiences.
Virtual Trainee Day is available as a 1-day event or as part of the full in-person registration. Visit the registration page for more details. A satellite viewing room for Trainee Day will be made available at Le Westin Montréal for trainees attending the ASM in-person.
