ObGyn Annual Academic Day

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-specialty 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 Obstetrics and Gynaecology.    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.
