Annual Spring Conference

Faculty for Tomorrow Workshop for Residents

May 2, 2020 • Salt Lake City, Utah

This free full-day preconference workshop, created by the STFM Faculty for Tomorrow Task Force and hosted by the STFM Graduate Medical Education Committee, is for residents and fellows who are interested in careers in academic family medicine. The workshop will include inspiring stories from family medicine leaders, guided self-assessment, breakout sessions on key teaching and academic skills, a career-planning panel discussion, and a leadership training session. Get the knowledge and skills you need to succeed and thrive as new faculty.

Registration for this workshop will be available through the Annual Spring Conference registration page in January 2020. Registration for the full STFM conference is not required, but you will need to call the STFM office at 800.274.7928 if you want to register only for this preconference workshop and not the rest of the conference. Attendance will be limited to 100.
