Residents & Fellows
Our aim is to create an accessible platform for information on upcoming conferences and events, opportunities for involvement and continued advocacy for our specialty.
We want to provide the tools to enhance the resident and fellow experience by creating a supportive environment for collaboration, links to mentorship, networking and career development.
