Navigating Early-Career Decisions for Residents and New Graduates: Success in Physiatry Practice
Residents and New Grads: Network with Faculty from Across the Country in April

Plan to join us for a virtual conference tailored for you on Saturday, April 23, 2022 from 9am to 2:30pm Central Time. Expert faculty from across the country will discuss resume-building strategies, contract negotiation, managing personal finances, starting a private practice, marketing and social media ideas, and more. We’re also hosting a virtual happy hour before the conference begins, so that faculty and participants can get to know each other before diving in. Don’t miss out—it’s FREE for AAPM&R members!

Prior to the Saturday session, there will be a networking event taking place on Thursday, April 21 from 7-8pm Central Time. Themed, The Power of Networking, this session is meant to be a low-key opportunity to network with peers, while hearing from experienced members provide tips on how to build your network, even in the virtual environment.

Feedback from Past Attendees
“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

“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

“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
