Why Should I Attend?

The annual NGIG Student Day is organized by the National Geriatrics Interest Group for medical students interested in geriatrics. This is a great opportunity to learn from Canada’s leaders in geriatric medicine and meet fellow like-minded students from schools across Canada.

Registration for the NGIG Student Day is free with registration to the CGS ASM. All students must be registered for the ASM in order to attend.
