Resident Education Day will be held on Thursday, May 2, immediately preceding the Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) of the CGS.
Resident Education Day
This one-day course was uniquely designed by geriatric medicine residents and program directors to complement the teaching curriculum of geriatric programs in order to cover Royal College examination topics. The day will include presentations from Canadian faculty experts, case‑based discussions, interactive polls and hands-on workshops. Space is limited!
The Resident/Trainee Dinner will take place on Thursday, May 2, following the CGS ASM Welcome Reception at the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Hotel. The dinner provides an informal opportunity for residents and medical students interested in careers in geriatric medicine to network with like‑minded trainees and faculty in geriatric medicine.
The dinner will include a keynote talk by Dr. Tricia Woo. Dr. Woo attended medical school and undertook fellowship training at the University of Toronto. It was here that she completed her training in Geriatric Medicine. She is currently an Associate Professor at McMaster University, a Geriatrician at St. Peter’s Hospital, the Geriatric Medicine Residency Program Director at McMaster University, as well as the faculty advisor for the NGIG & RGIG. Dr. Woo has a keen interest in interprofessional education, simulation-based teaching and increasing the profile of Geriatric medicine to medical students in Canada.
Registration is required for this dinner (see link below).
Registration for both events will close on Sunday, April 28, 2019.

CGS Cancellation Policy - Resident Events
Non-Cancellation Will Cost You...
Did you know that as a CGS Resident member, the CGS funds an annual day of training and a dinner? What an amazing benefit to being a member! Did you also know that if you register for the Resident Day and Resident Dinner, and do not attend, your non-attendance costs the CGS approximately $300? That is $300 that could have been used to fund an award or travel for another CGS student, or put towards a CGS fellowship!
The CGS office is required to give guarantees to the venue at least four (4) business days prior to the beginning of any conference. Therefore, if you sign up to attend the Resident Day or Resident Dinner and don’t give cancellation notice, you are included in the numbers for that day.
It is the fiduciary responsibility of the Board of Directors to ensure that the CGS’s monies are spent wisely, so we ask that if you registered for Resident Day and/or the Resident Dinner and are not able to attend the events, please cancel within 5 business days by contacting email@example.com.
Please support the CGS – we are a not-for-profit organization.
