Chief residents present at 2016 APDIM conference

Emory’s internal medicine chief residents (Lucas Golub, Andrew Ip, Joseph Knapper, Paul McClung, Jennifer Spicer, and Geoff Southmayd) recently presented “#BestConferenceEver: Developing an Innovative Panel of Conferences for Today’s Resident Learner” at the 2016 Association of Program Directors in Internal Medicine (APDIM) Conference.

The goals of the presentation were to:

  • Help rising chief residents assess their institutions’ strengths, opportunities, and barriers to holding great medical conferences
  • Describe several new conference formats developed at Emory over the past year
  • Facilitate the development of new conference ideas that each rising chief resident could take home and implement at their home institutions.

Over the past year, our chiefs have helped to revitalize Emory’s resident conferences, making them more engaging and interactive. They appreciated the opportunity to share their insights and positive experiences with other chief residents, and their presentation was very well received. In fact, a number of audience members have since contacted them to request additional tips on improving resident conferences at their respective institutions.
