Under the leadership of the Owerko Centre Education Committee, the Owerko Centre supports training opportunities for trainees from the undergraduate to the post-doctoral levels. Our commitment is to:

  1. Engage with key training partners across campus including ACHRI, the Cumming School of Medicine and the Faculty of Graduate Studies to provide education and training opportunities.
  2. Gather feedback from investigators and trainees regarding key areas in which training and career development opportunities are most needed.
  3. Create a shared language and understanding of neurodevelopment and mental health across disciplines to foster new knowledge and collaborations.

We actively create opportunities for trainees at all levels to advance their education and research through education related activities, event, and awards. This page will list those activities so please check back frequently for updates and opportunities.
