Annual Leadership Workshop

The 2017 Leadership Workshop is now accepting registrants.  This year’s course is on “Conflict Management and Negotiations"

Our Leadership Development Program is now entering its sixth year.  Like last year, it will be combined with the Ontario Anesthesia Meeting and will take place at Westin Harbour Castle in Toronto on Thursday September 14th and is anticipated to be a full day event.

All participants must be a member of the Section and must be registered for Ontario Anesthesia Meeting. Applicants should email eanderson@ontariosanesthesiologists.ca and outline their interest in the workshop and the leadership roles they have had and anticipate holding in future.

Applications will be reviewed by the Section Executive and successful candidates will be notified by August 15th.  Registration is limited to 20 and we will have far more applications than can be accommodated,  some weight may be given to applicants who have not attended previous workshops.

Good Luck and hope to see you there
