Collaboration of Practitioners and Researchers Seminar Series

The Collaboration of Practitioners and Researchers (CPR) Seminar Series is a students-led seminar series that aims to bridge the divide between basic science researchers and clinicians practicing at the bedside.

In contrast to the traditional single-presenter seminar format, our innovative approach has been to bring together medical students and graduate students to deliver a joint presentation on a topic of mutual interest in medicine. Each student brings a complimentary perspective, with medical students providing the clinical context while graduate students outline current research in the field.

The seminars are organized by medical and graduate students at Schulich. We operate on a student-led pedagogical model, where each seminar is followed by a group discussion period where students have the opportunity to ask questions of and learn from each other.

Getting Involved:

All Schulich medical students and graduate students are welcome to attend these seminars. To receive e-mail notifications of upcoming seminar dates and topics, please join our mailing list by contacting: cprseminarseries@gmail.com.
