Presenting at the annual Academic Assembly conference provides an opportunity to build your professional network and experience. Presenting a content rich session individually or as part of a team is a wonderful way to share knowledge, experiences, and ideas.

The conference's program will include sessions that teach best practices, stories of success, lessons learned, solutions to community and program issues, future directions and more. The conference program is split into several tracks, each focusing on a specific type of learner.

Program Tracks

Integrating the best resources and ideas for residency programs in EM.  Old favorites return, including “PD Survival Stories,” “Educational Soundbites” and new ideas coupled with innovative Ted style talks in the CORD 560 series.  A must for any residency leader in EM!

Navigating the Academic Waters Track
This track highlights fundamental junior faculty development topics, provides teaching and evaluation tools, as well as strategies for mentorship, time management, and leadership/academic advancement.  Attending these sessions will facilitate both personal and professional growth of faculty, as well as graduating residents just beginning their academic careers.
