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.   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.

If you have questions about Academic Day, please contact Jessie Dhillon, Research Manager.
