Seminar Series

Didactic seminars are available to Interns on Fridays throughout the training year. Seminars facilitate the attainment of core competencies. They are sequential in nature and are intended to complement the supervisory and clinical experiences of the Intern. In addition to their educative function, the Friday seminars provide an opportunity for the interns to meet as a group, to share experiences and to develop collegial relationships.

The following is a description of the seminar series:
