“For the past 15 years, the Trainee program at CCC has been evolving to meet the needs of the diverse group of young professionals that belong to the CCS. This year, for the first time, the Trainee Program will be delivered across three days and is fully integrated with the main Congress. As always, we aim to cater to a broad array of interests and we are leveraging technology, collaboration and the talent of senior CCS members to do so. New this year is the Trainee Lounge, where we have created an intimate environment to foster interaction and mentorship with Canadian and International leaders, and the Resuscitation Skills Lab, where trainees will put hands-on skills to the test in a dynamic, team-based setting. We are excited to engage the bright young minds that will advance cardiovascular medicine, scientific discovery, and educational leadership in our cardiovascular community.” (#71277A)
