About the Symposium

Perspectives is an annual one-day symposium hosted by Touchstone Institute in Toronto, Canada. Interdisciplinary and interactive, Perspectives on Professionalism will encourage communication and knowledge-sharing around the education, assessment, and impact of professionalism in regulated professions in Ontario.

Diverse in their expertise and practice, our speakers will explore aspects of professionalism including:

  • Transparency, reporting, and accountability
  • Teaching and learning professionalism
  • Leadership and interprofessional skills
  • Patient engagement and advocacy
  • Consequences of unprofessionalism

Perspectives Symposium combines research and theory with examples of practical applications. We aim to facilitate connections among disciplines to encourage communication and knowledge-sharing around topics in assessment and education for health professionals.
