MIPS/Canary Trainees Council

Launched in February 2018, the MIPS/Canary Trainees Council was established to be a resource to trainees and faculty. We hope this council will be a great resource to trainees and faculty alike. In addition to running monthly socials, we will gather information on trainee needs that will be used to guide workshops and seminars throughout the year. More updates to follow soon.

Aims of MCTC

  • To enrich both the training and social experiences of MIPS and Canary trainees (any non academic faculty)
  • To give trainees a platform to voice their needs (e.g. scientific, professional, career, wellness, etc.) 
  • To act as a link between trainees and faculty to facilitate the above needs
  • To create a strong peer network amongst trainees
  • To strengthen the community for all members


Vision of MCTC

To acheive these aims, the MCTC will do the following: 

  • Organize monthly trainee socials 
  • Plan professional and personal development workshops based on trainee needs
  • Welcome new MIPS and Canary trainees to the community
  • Promote the accomplishments of MIPS and Canary research groups
