Registration is open for the 12th annual Residents as Teachers and Leaders Course hosted by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) Division of Education. The 2018 program, April 13−15 at the ACS headquarters in Chicago, IL, is designed specifically for surgery residents and will address the essential nonclinical skills—teaching and leading—that are required for success as surgeons and members of the health care team.
The course faculty, all experts in resident education, will provide an interactive learning environment. Residents will learn to lead a team more effectively, resolve conflict, be better teachers, give constructive feedback, and apply these skills during and after residency. The number of participants is limited to allow ample interaction with faculty and to facilitate networking. This course is targeted at mid- to senior-level residents, but all are welcome to attend.
Registration information and a brochure are available on the course web page at www.facs.org/education/division-of-education/courses/residents-as-teachers; the advance registration discount ends March 16. Note that last year’s course was oversubscribed, so register soon if you are interested in attending. Contact Kim Echert at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 312-202-5488 with any questions.
