NGIG Student Day 2023
We are inviting all interested medical students to our annual Student Day on behalf of the National Geriatric Interest Group!
Each year, the NGIG organizes a Student Day at the Canadian Geriatrics Society’s Annual Scientific Meeting. This year’s Student Day will be held on Saturday, April 15th, 2023 in person at the Canadian Geriatrics Society Annual Scientific Meeting in Vancouver, British Columbia. The NGIG Student Day is an experience exclusively designed for future physicians who have a special interest in geriatric medicine and aging adults. This year, we are inviting current geriatricians, residents and other experts from across Canada with an interest in geriatric medicine to come and speak to a group of students on various topics. . We will have a guest speaker as well as work shops to help provide medical students with hands-on experience valuable for future practice with the geriatric population. This will be a great learning and networking opportunity for medical students of all years! Registration is included when registered for the CGS ASM itself.
