Careers in Health Informatics & eHealth Sponsorship Package

CHiE 2012


CHiE is a unique event in Health Informatics and eHealth. It aims to provide employment connections in the emerging field of Health Informatics to students and recent graduates in Ontario.


On March 22nd at 4pm, the event will begin with an hour-long keynote panel featuring Maureen Charlebois (Canada Health Infoway), Gary Higgs (CIO at Grand River Hospital and St Mary’s Hospital), and Will Falk (Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto). The evening continues with an informal reception (food and refreshments) and information exchange in which students have the opportunity to speak to employer representatives and see the participating organization display their company, products, and visions. We are inviting students and faculty from many Ontario institutions, including McMaster University, Ryerson University, University of Guelph, University of Waterloo, University of Western Ontario, Wilfrid Laurier University, University of Toronto, York University, Conestoga College, Centennial College, George Brown College, Mohawk College and Sheridan College.

CHiE is organized by National Student Forum for Health Informatics (NSF). CHiE 2011 brought 130 students and recent graduates from 9 universities and colleges across Southern Ontario together with 20 employers inside the Communitech Hub in Kitchener, Ontario. This year’s event will be even bigger, aiming to bring between 200 and 300 attendees to Kitchener City Hall.
