For the first time, ICRE’s Chief Residents are excited to announce the introduction of the Resident Networking Reception at ICRE 2017 in Quebec City.

This exclusive event is an opportunity for attending residents to participate in an evening of networking among colleagues and medical educators from around the world.

In a casual setting, residents will have the opportunity to mix and mingle with peers and many of the ICRE presenting speakers and leaders in medical education.

The reception will take place on Thursday, October 19 from 18:00-19:00 in Foyer 2 of the Quebec City Convention Centre.

Tickets to the Resident Networking Reception are $20.00 and include:
