We’re so excited to announce our second CaRMS session for you called “Meet the Surgeons Night”

We have a lineup of University of Toronto General Surgery graduates who all took uniquely different but incredible paths.

When you come to the University of Toronto you have the ability to shape your career in whichever direction you like. Whether you are looking to become a rural surgeon or an academic clinician-scientists (and everything in between), your goals can be met. Our graduates reflect the true diversity of this program and our incredible city!

We’ve got 4 fantastic speakers lined up for you on Monday, January 30th, from 7 pm - 830pm:
