The Junior Faculty Development Forum (JFDF) is designed to enable junior faculty to engage with senior leaders in our field, develop strategies for promotion, productivity, and academic advancement, and become the next generation of academic
emergency medicine faculty leaders.
The forum gathers chief residents from around the nation to discuss traits of effective leaders, network with peers, and get a crash course on keeping their residencies thriving. Engaging sessions by national leaders will emphasize the practical
aspects of being a chief resident, including optimizing resident schedules, developing innovative curricula, recruiting the program's next generation, and balancing wellness with leadership.
This symposium will serve as an overview of emergency medicine (EM) and the application and match process for applicants of allopathic, osteopathic, international and military backgrounds. In this day-long session, thought leaders in the specialty
will discuss the process of applying for an EM residency position. There will be specific discussions about clerkships, away rotations, personal statements, the match process, and interviews. There will also be ample time for questions
and discussions during a lunch with EM program directors and clerkship directors.
