Welcome to another year of Cross Canada Rounds. These rounds were started in 1997 by Dr. Sheldon Spier to fill some of the gaps in the training programs across the country.
- Share rare cases with colleagues to increase exposure to different pathology
- Discuss management of these patients so fellows from different programs can observe the variety of approaches across the country, and assess what is evidence based and what is institutional practice
- Provide up to date literature reviews on topics as a method of continuing medical education for participants
Accredited by the Royal College since 2015 as a Section 1 Group learning accredited activity (1 credit per hour). Attendance is taken by way of returned evaluation forms and CME certificates are emailed at the end of each calendar year.
Cases were posted from 2000 to 2009 and can be found at www.crosscanadarounds.ca. Since then, cases haven’t been posted but feedback from previous fellows has been that the cases are a useful way of preparing for the Royal College exam. So starting this year, we are requesting fellows to submit their presentations (more on that below).
Contact information for the participating fellows is included so that any changes necessary in the schedule can be made between the fellows. Please let Daisy Yin know of any changes so that the schedule is updated and correct evaluation forms are sent out. If you switch with another fellow, please keep the presentation type that was scheduled for that slot.
If you have any feedback on the rounds, feel free to contact myself, our administer or one of the members of the Cross Canada Rounds Advisory Committee (Dr. David.Zielinski, Dr.Martha Mckinney, Dr. Allison Carroll, Dr. Melinda Solomon, Dr. Glenda Bendiak and Dr. Christopher Gerdung) .
Thanks for participating,
Connie Yang (BC Children’s Hospital)
