Evening Journal Club - The Academic Appointments and Promotion Journey

UTDRO encompasses an academic community of 6 Cancer Centers in Southern Ontario (Princess Margaret, Odette, Southlake, Royal Victoria, Oshawa and Credit Valley). Therefore, it is fundamental to provide a forum to exchange clinical, research and educational knowledge. The UT-DRO Evening Journal Club (EJC) will help establish collaborative teams with members from different cancer centers to advance scholarly mandates.

  1. To develop knowledge exchange on clinical, research and educational topics within UT-DRO.
  2. To promote opportunities for collaboration within UT-DRO
  3. To provide the participants with a global overview on the selected theme for the event
  4. To showcase UTDRO innovations in the topic theme
  5. To strengthen our academic community within UT-DRO through social interactions

The Evening Journal Club takes place 3-4 times a year. The last event took place on February 8, 2018.
