Local Area Residency Education Community Comes Together at PRESENT Conference in NJ
The 2016 PRESENT Residency Education Summit East took place in Teaneck, NJ recently and hosted over 400 members of the residency education community. Co-chairmen Harold Schoenhaus, DPM, Robert Frykberg, DPM, MPH, and Guido LaPorta, DPM, MSC, put together a valuable curriculum of lectures on topics from surgery to wound care to biomechanics to life skills lectures to help young podiatrists get started in practice. Eleven hands-on workshops overflowed with attendees and the exhibit and lecture halls were packed with residents along with their program directors and attendings.
The 10th Residency Rumble questions were provided by the American Board of Podiatric Medicine (ABPM) and was won by brilliant teams from perennial winner and center of excellence United Health Services Hospital (1st Place), a combined team from VIRTUA West Jersey Hospital/Hahnemann University Hospital (2nd Place), and a combined team from the DVA-Northport/DVA-Salem (3rd Place). A roomful of residency directors participated in an interactive faculty development workshop designed to improve their residency program management skills, presented by Suhad Hadi, DPM, Marie Williams, DPM, Javier La Fontaine, DPM, and Kathleen Satterfield, DPM. The next Residency Education Summit Midwest 2016 will take place at the Hilton Chicago/Oak Brook Hills, IL – Sept 16-18, 2016.
