GME hosts a leadership development conference for new chief residents each year in May. This conference provides an opportunity for chiefs from all specialties to come together and build their leadership skills. Attendees receive a helpful resource book, The Chief Resident as Manager, which is a useful reference throughout the year. Popular session topics have included Strategic Communication and Leadership, Professionalism, Caring for Your Residents, Resident Work Hours, Patient Safety, Quality Improvement, Teaching Medical Students, and Conflict Resolution.
Confidential reporting for Medical Student, Resident and Fellow concerns about duty hours/fatigue, clinical supervision, patient safety, and professionalism.
