Residents at convocation


Postgraduate Medical Education Convocation

The PGME Office is looking forward to the reinstatement of our in-person Convocation Ceremony in 2023! This large, in-person event is a celebration of all final-year residents and clinical fellows. Attendance is optional and registration is required. 

The in-person convocation ceremony is scheduled to take place at the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts on June 2, 2023.


This year, Convocation programs are being offered online in order to reduce paper waste.  Please click here to view the 2023 program.

Live Stream

A live stream of the event is available on our youtube channel here.


There will be a photographer at the ceremony taking pictures of each resident and fellow as they receive their certificate.  He'll also be available after the ceremony to take pictures of individuals and groups on the rear patio overlooking Lake Ontario.  Photos are complimentary and can be viewed and downloaded at
