Are you a program director interested in hearing how other MedEd experts have survived and thrived through difficult situations? Or, are you a resident keen to learn from his/her peers about examples of best practice and successful navigation in the areas of leadership, career planning and resident wellness?
The unique Program Director Survival Stories session on Friday, October 23, 13:30-15:00 (PDT), will bring together program directors from around the world to share practical tips, techniques and strategies that have helped them succeed. This year’s international panel of medical educators features Dr. Majid Al-Salamah, King Saud bin Abdulaziz University for Health Sciences, King Abdulaziz Medical City (Saudi Arabia); Dr. Brian Chung, University of British Columbia, Vancouver (Canada); Dr. Meghan Walsh, Hennepin County Medical Center, Minneapolis (U.S.); and Dr. Felix Ankel, Regions Hospital, St. Paul (U.S.).
Early career physicians can also gain practical professional knowledge by learning about the successes and challenges faced by their colleagues, during the Resident Survival Stories panel on Saturday, October 24, 11:00-12:30 (PDT). A session special to the International Resident Leadership Summit (IRLS), this panel will be chaired by Dr. Adelle Atkinson, The Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto (Canada), and will feature stories from resident leaders Dr. Alysha Dedhar, BC Children’s Hospital, Vancouver (Canada); Dr. Natasha Snelgrove, Resident Doctors of Canada, Burlington (Canada); and Dr. Nicholas Costain, University of Ottawa, Ottawa (Canada).
