From Learner to Leader: Skills for Successful Transition After the Residency
12:30–2:30pm, Friday, October 26
Available to ACVS Diplomates and residents. Ideal for recent Diplomates. Pre-registration is highly recommended. Lunch is included.
After completing a residency, surgeons are arguably at the peak of their technical knowledge and the valley of their knowledge of what it takes to be a successful associate, whether in a practice or an academic faculty position. This talk will cover some of the skills necessary to negotiate generational differences, to communicate effectively within teams, and to serve as leaders in their new environments.
Presenter: Karen Cornell, DVM, PhD, DACVS, Associate Dean for Professional Programs, Texas A&M University
