ObGyn Annual Academic Day

UBC ObGyn 20th Annual Academic Day


In light of the continued and ongoing restrictions due to the COVID-19 crisis, we are cancelling this event.

The UBC Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology Academic Day is an annual event where trainees present completed research projects along with an invited guest speaker who presents their own research.  All divisions within our department take turns hosting the event and choosing the guest speaker.  It is attended by trainees and faculty within our department.  It is held over 1.5 days starting with an afternoon poster session followed by a full day of paper presentations.  Eligible trainees include Ob/Gyn residents, sub-speciality fellows within our department and graduate students in the RDS program.  We also accept medical students and other types of trainees provided at least one of their supervisors is a faculty member in the UBC Dept of Ob/Gyn.    Trainees are judged within their relevant trainee designation category and awards are presented at the conclusion of the main day at a catered reception.  Post-doctorate trainees are allowed to present their research, space permitting, but are not eligible for an award.
