Career Mentoring Session for Trainees

Friday, April 6, 2018
12:15 - 1:00pm (during lunch)
4th floor, Governor General Room

At this year’s Canadian Women’s Heart Health Summit (CWHHS), we are excited to bring a new networking opportunity to trainees via a Career Mentoring Session. The session will consist of a 45-minute round table session with experts in the field of women’s heart health. This will be an invaluable opportunity for graduate students, fellows and early-career researchers to discuss their own research projects and programs, as well as career development plans with each other and with leading researchers and clinicians in their fields.

The event will include predetermined round table sessions and mentoring discussions around the topics of: works-in-progress; theoretical problems; practical issues; future directions; and/or career suggestions – all within an informal setting.

Each table will include an invited expert/mentor who will lead and facilitate the discussion. Each participating trainee will briefly discuss their present work and career aspirations with the opportunity to discuss and receive feedback from the experts. The session will end with a general question and answer period. Up to eight trainees will be allocated to each table.

Graduate students, fellows and early-career researchers are eligible for this session. 

See mentor biographies for more information.
