Residents and New Grads: Network with Faculty from Across the Country in April
Plan to join us for a virtual conference, Navigating Early-Career Decisions for Residents and New Graduates: Success in Physiatry Practice, tailored for you on Saturday, April 15, 2023 from 9 am to 3 pm (CT). Expert faculty from across the country will discuss CV-building strategies, contract negotiation, managing personal finances, starting a private practice, marketing and social media ideas and more. Don’t miss out—it’s FREE for AAPM&R members!
As a bonus, we are mailing Physiatry Day t-shirts to registrants on a first-come, first-served basis! Be sure to check your inbox for a follow-up email to let us know your preferred size (please note that only limited sizes are available). T-shirts are only available for mailing addresses in the United States.
Who Should Attend?
Physiatrists-in-training (in residency or in fellowship) and newly graduated physiatrists (1-3 years post-training).
What's It About?
This unique virtual conference is intended to help physiatrists in-training and newly graduated physiatrists navigate their career paths.
We’ll touch upon topics that are typically not taught in residency, including CV-building strategies, job search advice, interview techniques, contract negotiations and managing personal finances. We will also discuss fellowship and non-fellowship career options, as well as private practice, academic and non-clinical career options.
At the end of the session, participants will have the opportunity to ask questions to an esteemed panel of physiatrists from different practice settings, including private practice, academics, hospital-based practice, VA, medical-legal and non-medical.
Please join AAPM&R for this special affair, intended to help you make some of the most important decisions of your career.

"It is important for early career physicians to experience mentorship and guidance through the process of making career decisions, networking, and tips for success in transitioning to a new role. This course connects early career physicians with established faculty across the country who can share their pearls of wisdom and empower the next generation of physicians to start their careers with confidence.”—Jacqueline D. Neal, MD, MSE, FAAPMR
“The course is an invaluable crash course to prepare new physiatrists for the professional road ahead. Our distinguished faculty will pack decades of lessons learned and words of wisdom into just a few hours. Participation in the course will pay dividends immediately and far into the future. Our hope is that course participants will not just apply knowledge gained to their own careers, but that they will also be equipped to educate their own colleagues and mentees using the knowledge gained from this course.”— Alexis S. Tingan, MD, FAAPMR, CAQSM
