Bone Scholar Meetings

The Bone Scholar Meeting is a quarterly seminar-style meeting held in Hamilton with the purpose of providing trainees, young investigators and new bone research groups to come together and share their insight into the field of rheumatology. Refreshments are often served at these meetings in a social gathering before and after presentations.

Next Bone Scholar Meeting: will be held on September 4, 2012 @ 4:30 PM. 

Where do we convene?

The Bone Scholar group usually meets quarterly at the Charlton Medical Centre (Suite 801, 25 Charlton Avenue East, Hamilton, Ontario).  More detailed directions can be found here.





Who participates at these meetings?

These meetings are excellent opportunities to meet others in a similar research area, to discuss projects and to find out what is happening in bone & joint research in the Hamilton-Kitchener-Burlington area. This may also be an excellent opportunity for students to present results to fellow colleagues and to practice oral presentation skills.

Particularly unique to this experience is the opportunity to interact with and to receive feedback from well-renowned experts including Drs. Jonathan D. Adachi, Alexandra Papaioannou and Colin Webber.

The audience at the Bone Scholar Meetings is usually a multidisciplinary team that includes rheumatologists, endocrinologists, geriatricians, radiologists, kinesiologists, engineers and physiotherapists. The content of the presentations varies, although there is usually a specific focus on topics including bones, joints and rheumatological diseases.
