Educational Activities

Dedicated education half days occur weekly throughout the year to ensure that residents have ample opportunity to cover the entire curriculum in a comprehensive manner.   These half-days include evidence-based clinical rounds delivered by residents.  GI Pathology rounds cover liver disorders and GI diseases, while GI Oncology rounds provide broad coverage of case-based GI oncological topics.  Weekly Medicine Grand Rounds cover general topics while monthly Health Sciences Education Rounds cover broader topics in medical education than span across programs and health professions.  A case based learning series occurs throughout the academic year, with a focus on topics not necessarily covered in the other rounds.

Journal Clubs further expand clinical knowledge and consolidate critical appraisal skills.  In addition, a national program of monthly videoconferences sponsored by the Canadian Association of Gastroenterology (CAG) addresses additional topics in basic science related to the GI tract and the liver.
