Each year, our conference puts out a call to resident leaders around the globe, to recruit some of the best and brightest to the ICRE Chief Resident program.
ICRE Chief Residents act as representatives and advocates for the international resident community leading up to, and during ICRE. The unique and valuable perspectives of this year’s chosen candidates will be reflected in the 2018 conference program.
The 2018 ICRE Chief Residents will be announced in early December 2017.
