Upcoming Events

Enhancing Clinical Teaching series

Three evenings of physician teacher development at North York General Hospital

Enhancing Clinical Teaching is an interactive three-evening teacher development series for physicians at North York General Hospital (NYGH) on how to be a better teacher and supervisor in the clinical setting. We encourage you to attend all three sessions for the complete experience, as concepts will build on each other. However, we also realize that life gets in the way. So each session is designed as a stand-alone workshop – if you can't attend all three.


5:30 p.m.–8 p.m.

Registration opens November 21, 2017
Register for one or all three sessions (preference will be given to those that register for all three sessions)


The facilitators for the sessions walk in the same shoes and face similar challenges that you do. And they have years of both formal and informal education and experience as master teachers and busy clinicians.
