The Next Step: Your Professional Life

Your profession has required years of training and dedication, and your skills and knowledge position you on the leading edge of your field. But as you enter the workplace you realize how much you still have to learn. What are the unwritten rules of your profession? How do you acquire the complementary skills and know-how that are outside of the curriculum? How can you garner the respect and confidence of your colleagues and patients?  Join fellow alumni and students from all programs within the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences for The Next Step: Your Professional Life and learn what it takes to successfully make the leap from student to healthcare professional.
