Geneva Park Retreat

Please be advised that the Department has made the difficult decision to cancel the on-site Geneva Park retreat scheduled for September 27-29, 2020.

Due to the complications presented by social distancing requirements that will likely still be in place in the Fall, the Department feels strongly that a larger-scale in-person gathering would not be in the best interest of the well-being of our students and faculty.

The Department and the MBPGSA are currently in the process of organizing an alternate one-day virtual retreat to take the place of Geneva Park, which is tentatively scheduled for Monday, September 28, 2020. Please reserve this date in your calendar. More information on this Virtual MBP Retreat will be available shortly.

About

The Geneva Park Retreat* has evolved into a great way for students and faculty in Medical Biophysics to meet and learn about their research programs in a relaxed and bucolic setting.

The retreat program features:

  • Keynote address from a prominent scientist in the field of Medical Biophysics
  • Scientific seminars presented by faculty and students
  • 'Faculty rotations market' to assist new MBP students with securing labs for the second and third rotation
  • Departmental meeting with Q and A session.
  • MBP award banquet
  • Generous time to network, socialize and enjoy all the recreational activities Geneva Park has to offer

The cost of the retreat is fully covered by the Department. Please note that students who register are required to attend the entire program. Those who choose not to attend the entire program will be charged the full cost of their accommodation.
