Kudos to Brett Parker, MD, PGY-4, and Rich Johnson, MD, PGY-3, for attending the 2018 Residents as Teachers and Leaders course.
The 12th annual Residents as Teachers and Leaders Course was hosted by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) Division of Education and held at the American College for Surgeons Headquarters in Chicago, IL.
The course helps surgery residents develop some of the essential nonclinical skills that will be critical to their success as senior-level residents and practicing surgeons. Residents learn to lead a team more effectively, resolve conflict, be better teachers, give constructive feedback, and apply these skills during and after residency.
