Past FLEX Activity Day events


The FLEX Activity Day was hosted on January 22, 2018 and was attended by faculty, students and supervisors. The highlight of the event was a keynote lecture "The Role of Scholarship for Clinical Practice" by Dr. Michael Klein, that was videoconferenced to all the distributed sites. Following the lecture, there were site specific events at each of the distributed sites (IMP, NMP, SMP and VFMP). At VFMP, there were student and supervisor talks/presentations, followed by posters and networking session. There were student prizes for talks and presentations at VFMP.
