CRA Resident Programs

The CRA hosts several resident programs exclusively for Canadian rheumatology residents to enhance learning and offer a collegial forum for residents to connect with their peers and program directors from across the country. We are pleased to offer several programs, including the National Written Rheumatology In-Training Exam (NWRITE), Fall Resident Event, National Virtual OSCE, Residents’ Pre-Course, and Spring Resident Event.  Stay tuned…dates and registration information will be posted on the website soon!
