The Resident Wellness Conference (RWC) is a PFSP sponsored event, in collaboration with the University of Alberta and University of Calgary wellness offices and PARA, and held biennially for each of Alberta’s medical school residents. This format offers the high level of choice and topics residents have requested and replaces the previous practice of PFSP providing ad hoc sessions for individual programs. Pre-registration is required; all registration fees are waived.

This years RWC will take place intermittently over three days: Tuesday, May 14; Wednesday, May 15; and Thursday, May 16.

The conference is designed for maximum flexibility and choice of interactive sessions with both virtual and in-person opportunities. Residents are invited to register for as many sessions as their time permits.
