Advances in Paediatric Laboratory Medicine
Paediatric Laboratory Medicine (DPLM) at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), in affiliation with the Department of Pathobiology and Laboratory Medicine at the University of Toronto, offers an annual educational program on recent advances in paediatric laboratory medicine. Since 2003, the symposium has been named after Dr. Laurence E. Becker, the founding Chief of Paediatric Laboratory Medicine. Dr. Becker initiated the symposia in 1997.
The DPLM Symposium features national/international speakers and is attended by laboratorians and other health-care providers from across the Greater Toronto Area, as well as the province.
The format of the symposium includes presentation by keynote speakers in the morning, followed by poster sessions in the afternoon. Awards are presented for the best posters in a number of categories, including graduate students, fellows, clinical residents and technologists.
This education event is approved as an Accredited Group Learning Activity under Section 1 of the Framework of CPD options for the Maintenance of Certification, RCPSC.
