Canadian Critical Care Review (CCCR)

Event Details Coming Soon!

The Canadian Critical Care Review is held annually and is designed specifically to meet the educational needs of practicing intensivists and critical care trainees. It addresses the clinical challenges faced both during the Royal College subspecialty examinations in critical care and in professional practice. The review course is intended as a knowledge consolidation and assessment exercise.

National Acute Critical Event Simulation (N-ACES)

Event Details Coming Soon!

This annual course is an excellent opportunity for residents to network and meet their colleagues from across the country and a shared start to their training will help foster lifelong friendships and collaborations. The goal of N-ACES is to rapidly upgrade the trainees’ knowledge and skills in the early management of critically ill patients. The course follows a small group learning approach using multiple modes of instruction, including a high proportion of experiential learning through a variety of simulation modalities (e.g. facilitated virtual case scenarios, phone simulation, etc.) and interactive group sessions with expert critical care faculty.
