Welcome to Convergence2023!

Welcome to Convergence2023, The Michener Institute of Education at UHN’s Annual Education Conference!  The convergence of care, research and education allows us to create new knowledge and skills that benefit our patients, families, clinicians and learners.

As we learn to navigate the world following the global pandemic, we also understand the importance of taking stock by revisiting the challenges we have faced, connecting with colleagues and looking forward to creating spaces for dialogue and inclusion. With this ethos in mind, we are proud to present this year’s theme:

                      Reflect, Reconnect, Renew

    •  Reflecting critically on our past, present, and future
    • Reconnecting with ourselves and others
    • Renewing our passion for work and commitment to equity

We look forwarding to having you join us on February 15 – 16, 2023.
