These weekly calls are for health care professionals interested in learning from others' clinical experiences. 

We encourage participants to bring questions and scenarios and share situations, learnings and takeaways from their clinical experience. Mentors will share their experiences, support discussions and answer questions. New participants are always welcome to join the clinical mentorship call.

The topics for the weekly calls vary depending on participant feedback and rotate regularly, including themes such as:

  • Medical care (such as primary care, gynecological care, surgery, and hormones)
  • Child, youth and family care
  • Psychosocial care
  • Readiness assessments
  • Special topics (such as ethics, legal, intersecting identities and experiences, peer and community supports, and more)
