Shields Research Day


General Information

We are pleased to announce that the 38th Annual Shields Research Day will take place on Friday, April 28, 2017 from 7:15 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. The location is the Arcadian Court, 401 Bay Street, Simpson Tower, 8th Floor, Toronto, Ontario. Please click here for a map to the location.

The overall purpose of our Annual Shields Day event is to bring together our clinical faculty, fellows, residents and anesthesia assistants from the University-affiliated hospitals. Shields Day also aims to provide a forum for updates on, and stimulate further research into the frontiers of clinical science with regards to anesthesia and related topics (e.g., critical care management, obstetrical anesthesia, pain management, etc.). We have been growing in recent years! As such, we encourage early registration. 


Note that our registration process has changed for 2017. Registration will be open to UofT Department of Anesthesia faculty, fellows, residents and graduate students whose primary supervisor is an Anesthesia faculty member up to Monday, March 27, 2017. Registration will then be opened to our other affiliates of UofT Anesthesia who are invited to register by Monday, April 10, 2016. Note that you will receive an email confirming your registration within 48 hours of submission.

Please also note that there is no on-site registration available.
