More than 30 residents will take part in this year’s Ob-Gyn Resident Reporter Program.
This invitation-only program for second- and third-year residency students offers a full immersion into the Annual Meeting, where they learn about the many benefits of the Annual Meeting and ACOG. Reporters will attend clinical seminars, lunch conversations, postgraduate courses, and a variety of events held Sunday during Junior Fellow Day.
Skip Granai, MD, FACOG, FACS, director of the Program in Women’s Oncology and associate professor at Brown University, will once again lead the Resident Reporters in a program to aid in their professional self-assessment and personal growth.
In addition, Reporters will connect with other reporting residents, ACOG leadership, and other Annual Meeting attendees, starting with Friday night’s Resident Reporter Meet and Greet and the Welcome Reception.
After the meeting, Reporters return to their districts and share what they’ve learned with their colleagues and others who might be interested. They also write a report on their experiences that will be shared with ACOG staff, program coordinators, and district chairs. Those reports can help shape future meetings and agendas.
Each district uses its own criteria for selecting Reporters and can send as many as they want, but only two positions will receive ACOG-sponsored funding.
The program, which has been going on for more than two decades, receives its funding from an unrestricted educational grant from Clinical Innovations and Myriad Genetic Laboratories, Inc.
