November is Research Month at Providence Healthcare, St. Joseph’s Health Centre and St. Michael’s Hospital. This year more than two dozen events will be held virtually through Zoom.

To celebrate the impact that research makes on policy, practice and, most importantly, patients, several activities are taking place throughout the month that staff are invited to attend. These include unique rounds, lectureships, workshops and networking opportunities. See below for a full calendar of events and join us for as many of these as you can or download the calendar here.
