WWCRQI 2017 | Waterloo-Wellington Clinical Research & Quality Improvement Symposium

2017 marks the fourth annual Waterloo-Wellington Clinical Research and Quality Improvement Symposium, and we were excited to feature diverse research and health-technologies exhibitors from the Region for a day of discovery and connections.

This symposium is devoted to research and quality improvement in the Waterloo-Wellington region. It brings together local students, clinicians, professionals, and researchers who are working to improve the clinical care in our region.

This annual event allows local clinical trainees, non-clinical trainees, clinicians, professionals, and researchers to showcase their research and quality improvement work and be recognized for their clinical and scientific excellence.

The aim of the symposium is to provide an outstanding opportunity for trainees to develop professional skills and to foster communication and exchange of ideas among new and established clinicians, professionals, and researchers from various backgrounds and interests.

In 2016 we were delighted to welcome members of the local technology and start-up community whose work focused on the many and varied intersections of technology and health.
