From the Director

Whoa!!! It is the last week of Doctoberfest and T-7 until the first day of recruitment. Seriously, how fast did October happen? I am really excited for the next phase of the year. It has been great meeting with advisees, hearing about your accomplishments, your questions and your goals for the next part of the year. SARs, congratulations on getting to this point in the fellowship and job interview processes. Remember to reach out with any questions – we are all happy to be sounding boards for these big decisions. JARs are gearing up for CICR (aka “ClinEpi”) and interns are moving into the second round of many rotations. Please take advantage of the opportunity to talk to Dr. Mitchell about scholarship planning as well as the application for the Stead Research Grants and (rising SARs) the Global Health short term rotation. And of course, signing up to help with the #bestrecruitmentcrewever. 

If you are able…SUPPORT THE GME BLOOD DRIVE!!

Continuity Clinic Survey
In MedHub now!! Please fill it out this survey to help us improve your continuity clinic experience. Thank you!

Advocacy in Clinical Leadership Track
Founded in 2012, the ACLT is an elective track for second and third year residents which focuses on health policy and advocacy. Residents come together during ambulatory clinical time, with weekly academic seminars on Friday afternoons. Participating in the ACLT does not change the length of training, though it may conflict with some other elective opportunities. The curriculum includes:

  • Advocacy and health policy seminars given by faculty in government relations and health policy throughout the year, covering topics such as the legislative process, public health insurance structure, health finance, policy regarding social drivers, how to make a pitch, and more.
  • Advocacy trip in the spring to either Washington DC or Raleigh, NC, alternating years. Residents create a platform based on issues they wish to address as a group and meet directly with lawmakers at the state and national level to present their views.
  • Seminars in leadership and career planning

Applications will be distributed in November, and due at the beginning of January. Please email Dani Zipkin with any questions!
