The BRI Trainee Executive (BRITE) is a one-stop resource for students and trainees in the Bloorview Research Institute (BRI), keeping trainees updated on news and events at Holland Bloorview, University of Toronto, and across the Toronto academic community. BRITE provides information on relevant opportunities including scholarships, conferences, and workshops. Achievements of our trainees, such as recent publications and conference presentations, will be proudly recognized. BRITE is also available to support trainees with writing, defending, networking, and academics.

Our mission is to develop a community of trainees within the BRI that provides an opportunity for academic growth, peer support and collaboration.
