Session 42: Creative Approaches to Dealing With Microaggressions on the Path to Leadership

Thursday, September 23, 2021
Hosted by: Frosso Adamakos, MD FACEP

Whether you are black, white, male, female, a junior or senior physician, we all will experience microaggression during our career and watch others go through them as well. Rather than moving through our careers with our eyes blindfolded and our hands tied behind our backs, we can choose to be knowledgeable about this topic. This lecture will not only convince you why this topic is important, it will also provide examples of micro and macro aggressions and what you can practically do in the moment to stop them and prevent them in the future. By being proactive with the environment around you, it will make yours, and your colleagues' work environment more productive and enjoyable.

Session 41: Practical Holistic Review

Hosts: David Duong, MD and Charlotte Wills, MD 

The Highland EM program is one of the most diverse residencies, in large thanks to holistic review. While there’s research backing up holistic review in increasing diversity, implementation is not so straight forward. We’ll be describing how we carry out holistic review, including culture change, application review, and adjustments we made to the program to facilitate efforts to diversify our residency.

Survey Says…

The 2020-21 match season delivered an unprecedented level of uncertainty to students and the faculty advising them. As members of the CORD Advising Students Committee in Emergency Medicine (ASC-EM), we developed and sent out a small survey on the recently finished 2020-2021 advising season.  We are still processing the data, but thought it was important to share some preliminary findings, as the 2021/22 advising season has already begun, and we will all be forced—again—to advise in the face of uncertainty.

A Path Forward–practical consensus on 2021-2022 EM advising

Happy New Year?

The two weeks spanning the winter holidays and leading into the new year are a glorious time.  Not only because of the holiday festivities (family, friends, gift-giving, gorging on fudge and pecan brittle, popping champagne) but also because we finally get a break from the interview season.  The last few months of frenetic activity all of a sudden goes on pause and there is this blessed protected time where we are not “supposed to be” doing anything specific.  The world of students and programs holds their collective breath, regroups, and prepares to head into the final push to the end.
