RIO Day and Graduation: Congratulations!
Thanks to everyone who participated at RIO Day on June 7! Presentations from our residents were outstanding, and we are so grateful to our moderators and support staff for their hard work. The day ended with an award ceremony and graduation for our PGY2s. More information is available online.
Message from the Chair

There are calls to better prepare our residents to engage in effective leadership. We certainly see examples of exceptional leadership among our Chief Residents, like Dr. Elise Azzi (pictured), who will be in the running for the CFPC Murray Stalker Award. Leadership in complex adaptive systems (CAS) was the topic at the recent CFPC Forum. As faculty, we all play leadership roles in many different contexts, and understanding and modelling our leadership skills in these systems takes work!
