From a dynamic plenary lineup, featuring leading experts from around the world, to dynamic networking opportunities, this year’s International Resident Leadership Summit (IRLS) offers better value than ever before. There are hundreds of reasons why you should start getting excited for IRLS 2014, but here are five to get you started:
Leading the Future – finding your path
On Saturday, October 25th, join leaders and colleagues from across Canada over lunch for this unique networking and development opportunity. This is a one-of-a-kind chance for residents to meet with leading innovators in medical education, and to learn from and be inspired by their trials and tribulations.
Disruption, Peer to Peer Healthcare, Creativity and YouTube: New skills for new doctors
Dr. Mike Evans, physician and educator, and the creator of the YouTube sensation Med School for the Public, will discuss the changing landscape in healthcare: how it is changing thanks to email clinics, apps and quantified self, and how it is not changing due to relationships, self-care, and attitudes. The talk will be interspersed with media developed in Dr. Evans’ lab, and will explore concepts such as curation, nudge, and evidence-based storytelling.
Join us Saturday, October 25th for this unique plenary session.
Residency Education Awards Dinner
On Saturday, October 25, join leading innovators and colleagues from across Canada and around the world to celebrate the closing night of ICRE 2014. Dr. Vincent Lam, a Toronto-based emergency physician, and author of the 2006 Scotiabank Giller Prize winner, Bloodletting and Miraculous Cures, will be the keynote speaker at the 2014 Residency Awards Dinner.
