Overview of OPOP Annual Retreats
OPOP annual retreats are both a strategic planning tool for the program and an opportunity for education and knowledge transfer. They bring together program representatives to review achievements and help set OPOP objectives for the new academic year. Participants typically include administrators, consultants and residents of all three OPOP member programs, including the University of Ottawa, the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health and Western University, as well as other institutions, along with representatives from all of the northern sites served by OPOP, including North Bay, Sault Ste Marie, Sudbury, Thunder Bay and outlying communities. The retreats are an accredited group learning activity as defined by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and the Canadian College of Family Physicians.
