As an art it requires confidence and skills in managing people and change. This 3-day course is an introduction to project management methodology, tools and techniques that can be applied to projects. Course participants will develop skills and obtain knowledge on how to plan, manage and deliver successful projects in any work environment. Participants will gain an overall understanding of Project Management, the four phases of the project lifecycle, how to use fundamental tools and techniques to manage projects, and how to manage a project from beginning to end while controlling time, scope, cost and quality.

Dr. Paul Bernard

TIME: 11:30 am

“Introduction to Cardiac Physiology”

Dr. Bernard received his PhD in Neuro-Pharmacology, Behavioral Neuroscience and Neuro Anatomy at the Atlantic Veterinary College, UPEI, graduating in 2008. He is currently an Assistant Research Professor, Department of Pediatrics, Division of Neurology, Anschutz Medical Campus, University of Colorado. His primary research interest is in the area of long-term consequences of early life seizures. A significant portion of individuals with autism spectrum disorder and/or intellectual disability have a history of early life seizures. The impact of early life seizures on long-term neurological outcome is not known. Do early life seizures cause/contribute to long-term deficits or are they simply correlative and a consequence of an underlying pathology?

Dr. Bernard is a candidate for a faculty positon in physiology in the Department of Biomedical Sciences.
