Residents at ICRE

ICRE residents

As the next generation of medical educators and leaders, the involvement and participation of residents in critical discussions around residency training and transformation is paramount.

Over the last decade, residents have become an influential and important part of the International Conference on Residency Education (ICRE), and they now make up a significant part of the conference’s primary audience.

With major transformations currently taking place within medical education systems around the world, and the topic of resident leadership and scholarship increasingly gaining visibility within ICRE’s program, we’re pleased to introduce a practical and timely new resident-focused Learning Track for 2018:

Engaging residents

Inspiring the next generation of leaders and educators

Through practical workshops, presentations and interactive sessions tailored towards residents and other learners, this track will engage our future leaders and educators in critical discussions and scholarship related to teaching and training; management and clinical skills; accreditation; resource stewardship; patient safety and quality; competency-based medical education; mentorship and more. How residents can best learn, navigate, adapt and excel within a changing medical education landscape is at the core of this learner-centered track, designed for residents; by residents.

Full session details will be available in Spring 2018.

"Being an ICRE Chief Resident gave me the opportunity to meet and interact with so many resident leaders and medical educators from across the world. I had an amazing time helping to design and implement such an important conference. If you're a resident looking for a challenge, an opportunity to shape the future, and to be inspired by medical education - apply to be the next ICRE Chief Resident!"
– Dr. Stephen Gauthier, University of Toronto, ICRE 2016 Chief Resident

“The opportunity to be a Chief Resident for ICRE 2016 was a fantastic one. It was definitely worth the trip from Australia to be part of such an incredible conference, to share ideas and learn from some great medical educationalists from all around the world. A perspective of how things are done in other places is always valuable. It was wonderful to meet so many residents/registrars who share a passion of being part of the ongoing transformation of medical education”
