Registration is open for the 14th annual Residents as Teachers and Leaders Course, hosted by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) Division of Education. The 2020 program, March 20–22 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 are nationally renowned clinical and educational professionals and 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. This course is targeted at mid- to senior-level residents, but all trainees are welcome to attend.
Registration information and a brochure are available on the course web page; early registration ends February 21. The number of participants is limited to allow ample interaction with faculty and to facilitate networking, so residents should register early.
