Annual Retreat

An annual retreat and research symposium for the entire program membership is offered, including prominent keynote speakers.  Attendees include members of the Program Advisory Committee and representatives from partner organizations such as The Arthritis Society.

The retreat offers a working luncheon where mentors give presentations on career-development topics. A mixture of research presentations and broader issues at the luncheon sessions, help trainees to become comfortable with interfacing their own specific research projects with broader issues, such as ethics in research and in health care delivery, and translation of knowledge to receptor communities.
