The SAEM Chief Resident Forum is the preeminent opportunity for rising chief residents in emergency medicine to gain the skills to successfully lead their residency programs. The forum gathers chiefs from around the nation to discuss traits of effective leaders, network with peers, and get a crash course on keeping their residency thriving. Engaging sessions by national leaders will emphasize the practical aspects of being chief, including optimizing resident schedules, developing innovative curricula, recruiting the program's next generation, and balancing wellness with leadership.
