Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows will also have the opportunity to meet with visiting speakers in one-hour, informal group meetings specifically for trainees to discuss research and career-related topics. Attendance is open to graduate students and postdoctoral fellows whose supervisor is a member of the BBDC.  The meetings will be held in the BBDC conference room. An invitation to meet with the speakers will be emailed to BBDC trainees (and their supervisors) approximately six weeks prior to each speaker’s visit, and registrations will be accepted at that time.

Please see the Faculty of Medicine Division of Endocrinology & Metabolism website for the City-Wide Endocrine Rounds Schedule.
