Participants are encouraged to attend both sessions, and our meet-and-greet happy hour on Thursday, March 4 at 8 pm (ET), to take full advantage of networking and educational opportunities during our virtual conference!
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 resume-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.
Attendees are invited to join directors and faculty for a pre-conference happy hour on Thursday, March 4 at 8 pm (ET). During this casual meet-and-greet, you'll have the chance to get to know each other while sipping on a cocktail or mocktail, depending on your preference! We'll be sending you a special recipe closer to the event. Keep an eye on your email after you register!
During the conference, participants will have more opportunities to build their professional networks. You'll be assigned Zoom* breakout rooms based on regional location, where you can create connections with faculty members in their area. Attendees who choose to submit their CVs for review will also receive feedback from different members of the faculty - it will be interesting to hear different perspectives!
At the end of each 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.
