Program Overview

The Academic Leadership for Residents program is a hands-on internship for residents in advanced education programs, designed to impart productive guidance methods and constructive management techniques for a resident’s future success in academic settings.

This onsite internship takes place over two 3-day phases, first in Atlanta, GA from Sept. 14-16, 2019 and wrapping up in Las Vegas, NV Feb. 8-10, 2020.
