2024 Resident Wellness Conference (RWC)
for University of Calgary residents! 

The Physician and Family Support Program (PFSP), in collaboration with the U of C Office of Resident Affairs and Physician Wellness and the Professional Association of Resident Physicians of Alberta (PARA), is excited to present the RWC 2024 U of C: Navigating Life as a Resident.

This RWC will take place intermittently over three days: Tuesday, May 14, Wednesday, May 15, and Thursday, May 16, 2024.

This year’s RWC sessions offer residents the opportunity to reflect and explore ideas and information to help them navigate their own journey through residency.  They will have the choice of topics, such as- nutrition, mental health, self-compassion, family planning and coping with ambiguity. Residents can register for as many sessions as their time permits and the conference is designed for maximum flexibility and a choice of interactive sessions offering both virtual and in-person opportunities.
