October 2022

We kick-off the month with a return to Haida Gwaii during a two-day course Oct. 1 and 2, when we’ll revisit where the HOUSE program was piloted. We’re excited to share the launch of two new webinars on the topics of trauma-informed care, and child and youth mental health and substance use, plus an online COVID-19 update you don’t want to miss this month. You’ll also want to take advantage of the early-bird deadline fast approaching for a new virtual conference — Hot Topics in Internal Medicine. The deadline to submit applications to the Residents Grants is also upcoming, so make sure you get those in. Looking ahead, we’re celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Faculty of Medicine’s Indigenous Pathway program with a webinar on Nov. 3, so be sure to register now.
