A Health Symposium for Residents, Trainees and IFMSA Alumni

Dates: August 2nd – August 5th, 2018
Location: Concordia University, Montréal
Fees: 300 euros with accomodation ; 150 euros without accomodation

Innovative and creative, the First Health Symposium for junior doctors and IFMSA alumni will offer high quality trainings on professionalism and social accountability, as well serve as a networking opportunity to over 200 young doctors. Participants will be able to present their work and research.

The Health Symposium will take place at Concordia University, on the 9th floor of the John Molson School of Business, a brand new conference center, a multi-functional, state-of-the-art facility. It offers fantastic views on the city.

Participants are also invited to attend the rest of AM2018 activities, including the Opening Ceremony and the traditional National Food and Drink Party.

The Health Symposium will be a health innovation hub. Montréal, and its continuous strive for better medical technologies, is the perfect location for this event. The incoming generation of physicians will be able to connect with the recently-established ones.

The Symposium is organized in collaboration with the Fédération des médecins résidents du Québec (FMRQ), the Resident Doctors of Canada (RDoCs) and the World Medical Association (WMA) Junior Doctors Network (JDN).
