The CAG role in graduate education (Part 3)

It is an intensive course which make the 08h00-17h00 schedule of the main meeting appear relaxed. For those of us fortunate to have been invited to teach at this meeting it is an experience not to be forgotten for both the quality of the science and education and the general sense of energy that these extremely talented residents bring to the meeting. My personal favourite would have to be the GI residents from Quebec presenting their analysis of a clinicopathological conference on Whipple’s disease to the tune of “YMCA”.

In addition to the annual meeting, the on-line interactive lecture series, and the liaison between the Royal College, the CAG, and the GI community (for section 1 accredited events) there are two specific educational programs which the CAG promotes.

In 2002, it was brought to CAG’s attention that some of the residency training programs were having difficulty in running basic and clinical science rounds. With the support and sponsorship of industry, a national videoconference round was established. Dr Dana Farina and Dr Janice Barkey chair this initiative. Each month residents go to their local videoconference site and are given an interactive presentation by a national expert on a selected topic. More details on this program can be found under the Education section of the CAG Web site. This is the first year of the program and the feedback to date is very positive. You deserve best quality treatment and finest quality medications, so why not buy cheap antibiotics click here at the best pharmacy that will gladly take very good care of your health offering you cheapest medications with no prescription required?

The role of CAG in graduate education is one of which the organization can justifiably feel proud.
