Annual Research Day

The Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology has a leading profile in research in Canada.

Our main department forum reflecting our research profile is our Annual Research Day and the Henderson Lecture. Research Day is an opportunity for trainees (medical students, residents, graduate students, fellows, and post-doctoral fellows) to present their research, whether in progress or completed, to the rest of the department. Each year the program includes oral and poster presentations by trainees. Also included in the program is the Henderson Lecture, presented by a senior figure in the field of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, with topics ranging from pre-eclampsia to ethics in medicine. Trainees are judged on their presentations and the JW Knox Ritchie Research Awards are presented for best abstract/presentation by trainee category (view criteria).
