Quebec City skylineThe International Conference on Residency Education (ICRE) is excited to announce that Quebec City, Canada will be the new location for its upcoming meeting, October 19-21, 2017.

Quebec City is one of North America’s oldest and most culturally rich Francophone settlements. From its picturesque location on the Saint Lawrence River, to the cobblestone streets of the Old Quebec historic district, ICRE attendees will understand quickly why Quebec’s nickname is “La belle province” (The Beautiful Province).

The announcement of the new conference location comes as a result of significant construction delays experienced by the Halifax Convention Centre; the originally planned venue for ICRE 2017. ICRE will now head to Halifax in 2018, instead.

All dates for ICRE 2017 and its associated programming will remain the same, despite the location change. We hope you will join the Royal College in Quebec City for the upcoming, 10th anniversary edition of ICRE!

Earlier this year, a call went out to international resident leaders, encouraging them to apply for the second annual ICRE Chief Resident submission process.

Residents from a wide range of disciples from all over the world expressed their interest in the role, and our selection committee was overwhelmed by the degree of skill and passion for medical education that all our applicants displayed.

Choosing just a few candidates from such a talented pool of residents was a difficult task; but we’re pleased to officially announce the ICRE Chief Residents for 2017:
