Conference Sponsorship Program

The PARA Conference Sponsorship Program was established to help embody the value PARA places on resident physician education and resident physician wellness.

As part of this program, PARA sponsors one resident physician from the University of Alberta and one resident physician from the University of Calgary to attend specifically chosen conferences on either physician health or medical education.

These conferences are selected based on how they met both PARA’s mission statement and its goals. Part of PARA’s mission includes “advocat[ing for] excellence in education and patient care while striving to achieve optimal working conditions and personal well-being for all its members.” PARA’s goals also include:

  • Well-being— PARA will work to improve the wellness of its members
  • Education— PARA will be an advocate for quality education and develop and support education opportunities for its member
