Student Primer

Location: Gatineau Room, Palais des Congrès

Summary of Event: Warm up for the 2018 CHWC with your fellow students by partaking in a health workforce trivia game! Following an initial orientation to the health workforce field, a trivia game will enable students to refresh their knowledge of the key terminology, background concepts, Canadian health workforce context, and key challenges that will frame discussions throughout the conference. At the primer, students will also have the opportunity to engage in an open and informal discussion with career professionals in the health workforce field.
