In addition to presenting the academic program, subspeciality exposure, resident research and teaching opportunities, wellness initiatives, and much more, there was ample time for students to ask questions directly to the panelists. Topics discussed were wide ranging, touching on both the academic merits of the program and what it is like to live in Ottawa. The following are some of the highlights:
