Meetings/Conferences

Resident and Early-Career Psychiatrist Leadership Track

As residents transition into early career, few have any formal training in organizational issues, teaching, or leadership. This track aims to train and guide the participants to become future leaders in the field of psychiatry. Sessions are open to all residents and early career psychiatrists, and may be especially helpful for those transitioning into a chief resident role. The objectives are to:

  • Enrich the participants’ command of their personal leadership style as they lead teams and groups of colleagues to build consensus between the program leadership and residents.
  • Train the participants as they deal with administrators and faculty
  • Meet and network with leaders in psychiatry
  • Delve deeper in particular career tracks through breakout sessions that are hands-on and interactive in style
