Canadian Arrhythmia Network
It was a busy month for us in May. We started things off at the Heart Rhythm Society conference in San Francisco and finished with another inspiring and productive Board meeting. And lots more coming up in June! Stay tuned for information about our Annual Scientific Conference, coming up September 15-16 in Calgary, Alberta. Registration will be open soon!
No time to chit chat, let's get to the highlights!

Heart Rhythm 2016

On Thursday, May 5, Dr. John Sapp, a CANet Network Investigator, presented results from the VANISH trial, which included the work of several other CANet members. His group's study found that for those whose arrhythmias weren't responding to medication, choosing ablation over more aggressive medication treatment was effective.

Dr. Anthony Tang, CANet's Scientific Director and CEO participated in a trainee session hosted by CANet and the Canadian Stroke Prevention intervention Network (C-SPIN).

And Dr. Bryce Pickard (Managing Director/COO) and Dr. Kevin O'Neil (Director of Research) were happy to talk to people about CANet at our display booth. Click through the gallery below for photos from the event, along with some shots from Dr. Sapp's presentation.

CHAT Discovery - Research Proposal Competition - CALL FOR PROPOSALS
CHAT members are invited to submit research proposals for CANet’s first Trainee Research Proposal Competition. The competition allows trainees to be the principal investigator on an original work. Successful proposals will be given funds (maximum of $25,000) to initiate their proposed research project under the supervision/mentoring of a CANet Network Investigator.

CHAT Travel Award
The CHAT Travel Awards are available to help members travel and present their CANet related results or outreach initiatives at conferences/workshops/events outside of those sponsored by CANet. This is an open competition and submissions may be submitted at any time. Application forms must be received a minimum of 4 weeks in advance to the event. Preference will be given to those who already have an accepted abstract at a conference/event.

CHAT Job Shadowing/Internship Award
The Job Shadowing/Internship Awards are available to CHAT members to give trainees a job shadowing/internship opportunity that will give them exposure to experience in a sector that is not their own. For example, a medical student could job shadow a CANet member employed in the government sector or an engineer at one of CANet’s industry partners. Likewise, an academic trainee could job shadow a clinician during procedures. 
Awards are available for a maximum 2 week placement duration if fully funded by CANet. Opportunities are available for longer placements if coupled with other internship programs. This is an open competition and submissions may be submitted at any time. International placements are eligible.
