National Hematology Resident Retreat

In July of each year, hematology trainees from across Canada gather in Toronto, Ontario for the National Hematology Resident Retreat. This event spans a weekend of educational activities including a mock oral examination, specialized workshop (topics changing yearly), Jerry Scott Half-Day of expert lectures, and morphology exam/review. The retreat is coordinated with the Annual Hematology Web-based Written Exam which is offered in July, to provide a full spectrum of examination preparation for senior trainees and expert teaching for all levels of trainee. In addition, this weekend provides opportunity to meet and socialize with fellow trainees and hematology faculty from across the country, forging new contacts for future collaboration and friendships.
