SMRTS Seminars Program
The SMRTS (Sharing Multi-network Resources for Trainee Success) Seminars Program is a professional development initiative between 9 national and provincial networks aimed at providing the best possible programming to our respective trainees.
Each month, we will offer our trainees access to a wide range of soft skills programming through a live-streamed webinar or event. For further information about specific webinars, please contact the host network as listed below.

“An Assistant Professor’s Guide to Writing a Scientific Review Paper”
Speaker: Dr. Lee-Hwa Tai
Writing a scientific review paper is a big job and requires breakdown of the tasks. Most graduate students will benefit from writing a review paper on their subject matter during their academic studies. This webinar will provide you with the basic tools to start reading and writing! Dr. Lee-Hwa Tai will also start the webinar with a biography and description of her career trajectory. We hope the Q&A will be an informal opportunity to ask questions about not only review writing, but also career-related questions.
