Transition-to –Practice

Ontario’s Anesthesiologists hosts a “Transition-to-Practice” event specifically directed towards residents and fellows, held during the annual Ontario Anesthesia Meeting. This event is specifically directed towards assisting residents and fellows with non-medical expert topics such as incorporation, leadership, billing, disability insurance, etc.  The fall meeting is a great opportunity to meet fellow residents from different programs in Ontario, attend academic lectures and begin to make those connections for future employment. Please check out the OA Meeting Website for more information regarding this event and others at this year’s Ontario Anesthesiology Meeting.

Leadership Programs

This past winter, Ontario’s Anesthesiologists was very pleased to sponsor 20 postgraduate Anesthesiology residents from across the province to participate in a resident directed online leadership course.  This course was designed and offered through the Physician Management Institute and supported by the Canadian Medical Association.

Ontario’s Anesthesiologists would like programs like these to be an ongoing initiative, to support new leadership skills and perspectives that allow residents to interact and collaborate with one another across Ontario.
