BRI Trainee Rounds are monthly forums which provide an opportunity for trainees at Holland Bloorview's research institute to gather, engage in cross-disciplinary learning, and meet other trainees and interesting speakers.
At each round, internal or external speakers give seminar presentations which expose trainees to a wide variety of topics and provide us with learning and experiential opportunities that help us grow as professionals. The rounds target diverse areas of professional and academic need, including familiarizing with the research process, improving networking skills, understanding family engagement in research, and navigating career planning. The topics are chosen based on trainee and administrative suggestions.
Do you have ideas for future rounds topics, or feedback on past rounds? Contact us! We would love to hear from you.
When: Tuesday, February 26th, 2019, 12 p.m. to 1 p.m.
