PGME successfully hosted its first Annual Convocation Ceremony in uOttawa history on June 23, 2017. The President and Vice-Chancellor of uOttawa, Mr. Jacques Frémont, joined Dr. Bradwejn and Dr. Wiesenfeld to congratulate the residents during his address. Keynote speaker Dr. Jeffrey Turnbull, former Chief of Staff at The Ottawa Hospital, shared a few words of wisdom with our residents as they embark on the next phase of their career in medicine.
" uOttawa has a long and distinguished history of training medical and healthcare professionals; we are proud to celebrate our students who are both physicians who teach medical students as well as individuals who are learning in a clinical setting. As such, they are perfect examples of the Faculty’s motto of 'We teach to heal’ ", said Mr. Frémont.
We extend a special thanks to our speakers, and volunteers for contributing to the success of this event.
