PM&R Department Chairs are a unique group of leaders in physiatry navigating a rapidly evolving and increasingly complex environment, and this has only become more true with the COVID-19 pandemic. This virtual, invite-only summit is intended to provide a private, collegial venue for this group to gather and discuss the challenges they are facing, as well as share strategies to address those challenges.
The 2020 summit will focus on the challenges faced by department chairs to advance their mission and protect their staff within their systems and the current environment. The highly interactive format will include a mix of outside speakers, panel presentations, and small- and large- group discussions to explore the difficult and complex issues this group faces.
This is an opportunity to take some time with your fellow department chairs to discuss the difficult challenges you face and come away with practical, concrete ideas that you can apply to your job immediately. An executive summary of themes and strategies will be provided to attendees following the summit. This activity has been approved for up to 5.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.
This summit is an invite-only event for PM&R department chairs and/or their equivalent PM&R division chiefs that report up through another department.
At the conclusion of this summit, participants will be able to:
