The International Conference on Residency Education (ICRE) is the world’s largest conference devoted exclusively to advancing residency education. For our upcoming conference in Ottawa, Canada (September 26-28, 2019), we will feature six plenaries, 21 learning tracks, more than 60 workshops and approximately 200 poster and paper presentations.
The theme of this year’s conference is “Diversity in Residency Education: Training in a World of Differences”.More detailed program information will be released in early 2019.
The 5th Toronto International Summit on Leadership Education for Physicians (TISLEP 2018) again welcomes international thought leaders, educators, patients, learners, faculty and other stakeholders interested in healthcare leadership education in the era of competency-based medical education. This year’s theme is ‘Charting a new course: Culture change and healthcare leadership’. Our keynote speaker, Dr. Mark Fleming, Canadian National Railway Professor of Safety Culture and Professor of Psychology at Saint Mary's University in Halifax, will share his expertise on the topic of ‘A leader’s guide to organizational culture: Creating and managing change’. TISLEP 2018 is beautifully aligned with this year's ICRE theme: “The Learning Environment and Residency Education: The Evolution of Training”.
This Summit is hosted by the University of Toronto and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. All those interested in attending may register for TISLEP when registering for ICRE. You can also register for this event alone

This session is designed for medical education leaders, residency directors, medical educators, residents, health care leaders, program administrators, faculty, and learners. Upon completion of this session, participants will be able to develop an approach to clarify and focus the scope of the clinical learning environment (CLE); explore and analyze various elements and perspectives through which the CLE can be analyzed and measured; identify opportunities for research and further understanding of the CLE through these elements and perspectives; and produce a constructive, informative and evidence-based summary of consensus conference findings to move the field forward.
Optimization of the clinical learning environment (CLE) is a complex construct with multiple elements. Prior work on the CLE has focused on physical space, clinical and educational aspects, and the social, cultural and interpersonal attributes of settings where trainees learn and participate in care.
The overarching aims of this consensus conference are to enhance the medical education community’s understanding of the clinical learning environment, and identify and suggest systematic interventions to improve the CLE to advance patient care and clinical learning.
The annual International Medical Education Leaders Forum (IMELF) provides an opportunity for senior leaders such as presidents, CEOs, deans and postgraduate deans from medical education colleges and institutions around the world to discuss challenges and innovations related to postgraduate medical education and lifelong learning. This year’s theme is Artifical Intelligence in Medical Education. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
This workshop will provide participants with educational concepts, practical hints and guidelines to orient and support them in assuming the responsibilities of their role as new program directors. Participants will have the opportunity to attend various interactive workshops to improve their knowledge of Royal College policies and processes, and experience personal development in their role as program directors. For more information, please contact email@example.com.
This invitation-only workshop provides training for Royal College surveyors of residency education institutions/ programs. The workshop will provide participants with an overview of the process for accreditation reviews in the new CanERA system, including a hands on demo of the new Accreditation Management System (CanAMS) that is used to conduct all accreditation reviews. The workshop will also include tips and suggestions for how best to prepare for conducting an accreditation review.
This session is designed for Education Researchers, Clinician Educators, Program Directors, Program Administrators; and anyone interested in practical discussions on the learning environment. Upon completion of this session, participants will be able to articulate key elements that influence the learning environment in clinical workplaces; brainstorm which elements are most amenable to improvement; and share strategies on how to improve clinical learning environments.
The overall goal of this session is to engage a community of educational leaders, program administrators, and researchers in a scholarly discussion about how to foster productive learning environments in residency.
Positive learning climates are central to delivering effective residency learning and high-quality patient care. Do you grapple with creating and fostering a learning environment that is supportive yet at the same time challenges your trainees to be the very best at what they do? Do you wonder how other leaders tackle problems with their clinical learning environments? If you are a part of the team responsible for a learning environment or if this is a topic about which you are passionate, please join us over dinner as we wine, dine and apply our minds to tackling these tough questions.
Building on the ICRE 2018 theme, the Scholarly Conversations Program will allow participants to engage in discussions on this topic over dinner, led by a panel of international leaders in Medical Education. In a highly interactive format, participants will explore together what key actionable elements how to improve clinical learning environments that are practical and feasible.
Clinician Educators responsible for curriculum design in postgraduate medical training often grapple with how best to teach leadership. Many leadership behaviours can readily be identified and often manifest during residency. However, the question of how to foster the development of leadership skills remains a thorny one. This derives partly from varying definitions of “leadership” and partly from the variable opportunities to exercise leadership during residency training. ICRE 2018 in Halifax, Canada will provide a forum for exploring “Leadership and Change in Residency Training”. Building on this theme the Clinician Educator Program will allow participants to engage in scholarly discussion over dinner, led by a panel of international leaders in Medical Education. In a highly interactive format, participants will explore together how to develop leadership curricula that are practical and feasible.
On Friday, October 19, the three KeyLIME (Key Literature in Medical Education) co-hosts (Drs. Jason Frank, Linda Snell and Jonathan Sherbino) will discuss the key points of the medical education articles they’ve selected for this live session. Articles that are important, innovative, or that will impact your educational practice will be discussed. The co-hosts will welcome a yet to be announced guest host for this special live event – audience participation and questions are encouraged!
The audio from this live session will be recorded and integrated into the weekly KeyLIME podcast schedule, produced by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
For questions, please contact the KeyLIME Secretariat at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This event is on a first-come, first-served basis and seating is limited. Lunch will be provided to attendees of this session.

ICE Summit: Controversies in Medical Education
Do you dream about having your mind stimulated and your convictions pushed to the limit? Would you like to interact with Clinician Educator thinkers and doers from around the world? Then the ICE Summit is the event for YOU!
Led by dynamic and renowned Clinician Educators, ICE Summit will push you to think deeply about the most controversial and provocative elements of MedEd – our speakers aren’t presenters, they are provocateurs! [pruh-vok-uh-tur, noun; a person who deliberately behaves controversially in order to provoke argument or other strong reactions.]
Our Summit is about discussing and sharing ideas with some of the brightest minds in MedEd. You will leave with new ideas and concepts, a renewed zest for education practice, a collection of strong take-home messages and new network of international colleagues.
Please note that this event is held in English only and is aimed at practicing clinician educators. The ICE Summit defines a ‘clinician educator’ as follows:
A CE is a current or former clinician with experience in the delivery of healthcare as well as the supervision and teaching of health professionals.
They apply education, psychology, and leadership theory to educational practice;
Engage in education scholarship; and
Provide consultation and advice regarding educational issues in the health professions.
If you are thinking about or getting started with implementing competency-based medical education (CBME) in your program then this workshop is for you. CBME is an emerging approach to health professions training, oriented to the abilities required upon entry into practice and deliberately organized to facilitate progression of expertise. CBME is rapidly becoming adopted by innovative programs in multiple professions and various stages of training around the world. This course is an introduction to CBME that will provide any medical educator with the basic knowledge and skills required to implement CBME.
