Community Bulletin Board

The Well Doc Alberta Community Bulletin Board is a place to share information about upcoming physician wellness related events as well as research studies currently open to recruitment.

All postings will be reviewed by Well Doc Alberta Leadership for their relevancy to physician wellness and applicability to Alberta physicians, residents, and medical students. Please submit your posting early and allow at least one week for your submission to be reviewed.

For-profit events will not be posted, nor will research studies without formal Research Ethics Board approval or exemption (in the case of quality improvement work).

Once posted, event listings will remain on the website for up to one week past the event date. Research studies will be posted for a maximum of 6 weeks.
