Training & Education

Training and Career Development Committee

The Canadian Concussion Network recognizes the importance of engaging trainee members (at all levels of research and clinical training) and early career investigator members throughout all initiatives and specific trainee and early career focused-initiatives. 

The CCN-RCC further recognizes the important role that trainee and early investigator members should play in shaping all CCN-RCC initiatives and the mission and goals of the CCN-RCC.

Our approach

The goal of the Training and Career Development Committee (TCDC) is to promote and implement quality trainee and early investigator initiatives within the CCN mandate. The TCDC will support dissemination of information about the activities of the CCN-RCC that are of interest to trainees and early investigator members in a timely and effective manner.


Our activities

In collaboration with the other three CCN-RCC committees (i.e., training and career development, patient and stakeholder engagement, technology transfer and commercialization, integrated knowledge translation and mobilization, research methods and platforms), the TCDC will be responsible for supporting the following activities:

Annual meeting activities and engagement events including:

  • Local and National Presentations
  • Annual Meetings and Abstract Reviews
  • Social Events

Leadership in advancing member success and early career development

  • Peer to Peer Mentorship and Reviews
  • Planning and implementation of monthly web-based seminars/panel discussions/journal club
  • Supporting collaboration for trainees and early career investigators across the network (e.g., trainee exchanges, networking opportunities)

Our members

The TCDC provides representation on all CCN-RCC sub-committees and ensures optimal communication across trainee and early career investigators across the network by establishing:

  • Trainee skill exchange
  • Networking opportunities
