In 2021 HIROC launched a new pan-Canadian Risk Residency Program, co-designed by healthcare risk and safety specialists. 

Participants learn from risk management, patient safety, human factors, insurance, claims, and legal subject matter experts from across Canada on a variety of applied topics. 

This program provides an opportunity to learn from the shared experiences of others, and brings together a knowledgeable community of experts. By the end, learners will have built a network of peers from across Canada and gained confidence on navigating the intricacies of risk management in a healthcare environment.  

The Risk Management Residency Program—offered at no cost to HIROC Subscribers—applies a blended learning approach (online educational materials and opportunities for interaction) accompanied by mentorship and coaching.
