Feedback from Past Attendees
“Anyone considering attending the course should absolutely attend. The networking with other early-career physiatrists, as well as with those running the course, is excellent. And all of the various things I learned throughout the day really reaches far beyond what I expected. I would even consider attending the course again.” – Past Attendee

“I thought the course was incredibly monumental to help advance my career.” – Past Attendee

“I definitely think this is a great course for the senior resident physicians and early career physicians who want a refresher in how to navigate their career or just helping senior residents understand how to plan their career in the next few years.” – Past Attendee

“As a new attending building an outpatient general PM&R practice from the ground up, I could not have asked for a better experience.” – Past Attendee

“I thought the early-career course was excellent. I really enjoyed the day and I learned a lot that I will be applying in the near future.” – Past Attendee 

“These are topics that are rarely covered by residency programs, so it’s a great resource for physiatrists who are early in their careers to get a 'lay of the land.'” – Past Attendee
