APDIM Chief Residents

APDIM is proud to offer a year-long program for chief medical residents. Beginning with the APDIM Chief Residents Meeting, the association strives to provide information and resources to chief medical residents that will enhance and improve the chief residency year. 

Chief Residents Meeting

Every spring, APDIM offers a two-day meeting for incoming chief medical residents. This meeting introduces chiefs to the world of academic internal medicine and orients them to the challenges they will face in the upcoming year.

A mix of large group plenary sessions and small, hands-on workshops provide chiefs access to information about leadership and teaching skills, professionalism, and management issues. It is also an opportunity to meet other chief medical residents and network with program directors and program administrators.
