Getting Ready to Enter Practice – A Conference

2021 was the inaugural year for our annual Get Ready to Go & Make a Difference practice management and community exploration conference and job fair. This conference aims to help connect learners and residents with future learning and work opportunities. Recruiters and physicians from a number of communities across Northern Ontario attend to share employment opportunities and information about their respective communities and work places. During the first conference, there were virtual opportunities to network in chatrooms and hear about the unique experiences communities and practices have to offer.
