Resident/Fellow Member Programs

Research for Residents/Fellows - From Idea to Publication
Actualizing a research agenda as a trainee presents several challenges, including finding mentorship, becoming knowledgeable of research methodology and statistical analysis, acquiring funding, and balancing work-personal time. This panel discussion is meant to be a ‘how-to’ manual to help residents and fellows take their research questions from idea to publication.

Healthcare Advocacy for Residents/Fellows
For many reasons, the 2020 presidential election was described as ‘the most important election of our time.’ One of the central aspects of this election was, once again, healthcare reform. The election included a robust discussion on a wide variety of healthcare reform proposals, including a public option for health insurance, ‘Medicare for All,’ ‘Medicaid for All,’ ‘Medicare for America,’ et al. The basis for policy analyses are difficult to extract from the political conversation — until now. Our panelists will describe what we know about the basis for the healthcare reform options being described, and what the implications may be for national or state-level policy changes.

Being Antiracist: Strategies for our Institutions, and Ourselves
Structural racism has been given new prominence in public dialogue following the murder of George Floyd, June 2020. In response, many organizations, including the ACP, have declared themselves 'anti-racist' using a description pioneered by Dr. Ibram X. Kendi. Learn what this has meant for the College, hear from leaders of anti-racist thinking and advocates for diversity, equity, and inclusion at multiple levels within the ACP and at their home institutions, engage in a dialogue about what (if anything) has been accomplished in moving our institutions, the College, and our health care delivery system towards anti-racism, and hear (and contribute) suggestions and lessons learned about how to carry this work further toward equity.

All Audience

Normalizing Mental Health Conversations: Creating a Supportive Learning Environment for Physicians-in-training

Normalizing mental health conversations and help-seeking are crucial to the medical training process. Learn how to recognize the alarm symptoms in oneself and trainees in crisis and be able to access and share resources to support needs. Speakers will explore how to use attentive listening, understanding, and empathy to create better teams and environments and share how focusing on your own well-being can contribute to positive experiences among team members at all levels of training and make you a better advocate for well-being and professional fulfillment in medicine.
