This event provides a wonderful networking opportunity for dermatology residents. It all started 6 years ago when a Quebec McGill University resident approached Galderma with the idea to offer a different approach to learning! Galderma committed to sponsoring the first-ever weekend resident retreat and helped to organize session speakers and content. After the inaugural success, Galderma realized an opportunity to elevate this event to include all 4 Quebec universities by doubling the sponsorship.
The weekend retreat gathering offers enhanced educational learning and an opportunity to network with leaders and colleagues in a relaxed environment. The program consists of a mix of presentations exploring new techniques, new treatments and a review of subjects that impact the residents in dermatology. There are presentations from international and local dermatologists that specialize in certain areas such as psoriasis, acne, ulcers and research. These speakers come to share their techniques as well as inform the residents about ongoing research. As a result the residents receive up to date information with new treatments for offering patients new options. It also provides a good opportunity for the different university residents to connect with one another and share insights into how their faculty functions.
This popular event includes all 3 Quebec universities and recently expanded nationally to Ontario to include Ottawa University.
