Young Investigator Forum

In conjunction with the Canadian Hypertension Congress, our second Young Investigator Forum, in partnership with the CIHR-Institute of Circulatory and Respiratory Health, the Canadian Vascular Network and supported by Servier will take place. We support trainee attendance through travel awards and showcase trainee research at the Congress.

The objectives of the Young Investigator Forum are to:

  • Showcase their health research
  • Learn about career development and paths
  • Develop leadership skills
  • Share ideas and network with peers and with leaders in the hypertension field.

All Young Investigator sessions are included in the Trainee Full Registration.
