Aligned with our Networks goals and commitment to finding innovative solutions to reduce premature death and suffering caused by heart rhythm disturbances (arrhythmias), we strongly recognize that sustaining the future of this initiative lies in the hands of the next generation of investigators, clinicians, and healthcare professionals.
With our goal to propel 30-40 new professionals in public and private research through the development of Highly Qualified Personnel (HQP), we have formed the CANet HQP Association for Trainees (CHAT).
CHAT provides valuable resources and opportunities for its members to network with like-minded colleagues as well as, participate in events and competitions across Canada that help strengthen their research and career development.
To view competitions available for CANet HQP Association for Trainee members, visit the Funding Opportunities section of our website.
In total 71 courses and workshops were attended by of 1652 CHAT Members in 2017. 13 courses/workshops were attended by 323 of CANet’s Allied Health Professionals in 2017. Since 2015, with CANet’s PROPEL goal, 11 CHAT Members have graduated into the workplace.
It’s such an invaluable tool be able to come to these workshops and gain the experiences that are so vital and are missing in a typical education and residency program
