Put your heads together

MERIS (Medical Education Research and Innovation Showcase) is a one and a half day conference that presents research and innovation relevant to  medical, interprofessional and health professions education. As an attendee, you’ll join other professionals with a common interest in medical and health professions education.

It’s not only a perfect opportunity to meet and share information with faculty, preceptors, residents and students in the medical, dental and health professions community, it’s also a chance to mingle with other members of the greater Dalhousie community.

This offers a forum for faculty, residents and student to present their scholarly/professional working topics such as curriculum, teaching,/learning, evaluation and faculty development in undergraduate, postgraduate and continuing education.

Please contact Anna MacLeod (Chair) or Linda MacNutt (Event Co-ordinator) for more information.
