RESIDENT PROGRAM

DO YOU KNOW A RESIDENT ATTENDING THE SCIENTIFIC CONGRESS?

Participants in the ASRM Resident Education Program will attend a flipped-classroom, interactive virtual learning session, led by experts in reproductive medicine and medical education, and a related symposium and plenary.

This ASRM-sponsored program (no additional cost to participants) is open to residents who opt in at the time they register for the Scientific Program using a dialogue box that will open during the registration process.

Purpose

ASRM is committed to facilitating and promoting education of reproductive health professionals at all levels. As part of this mission, the Society develops and coordinates educational activities for resident physicians in training in reproductive medicine. The program emphasizes the understanding of complex topics, the interaction with other disciplines, and the psychosocial sequelae and ethical concerns in human reproduction.

Description

ASRM has organized an education program consisting of two parts:
  •  Medical Education: Educational sessions coupled with topically related activities from the Congress (one symposium and one plenary). The activities will be evidence-based, free from bias, and independent of commercial influence. The discussions will require ~20 minutes of advance independent study of articles, videos, or handouts relevant to the topic.
  • Q&A Session with Current Fellows and Fellowship Directors: Twice during the Congress, there will be offered a live panel discussion for residents interested in applying for REI fellowship. The panel will consist of current fellows and fellowship directors; attendees are encouraged to ask questions about the fellowship interview process and the panelists’ experiences.

Procedure

  1. Residents will register online for the program during their regular registration process by checking YES on the invitation that will appear for all registrants who designate “resident” as their practice code. There is no additional fee for participation.
  2. Registrants will receive an email 2 weeks in advance of the Scientific Congress with a link to materials to prepare for the learning sessions and symposia.
  3. Registrants will attend the sessions described below.
  4. After the Congress, registrants will receive a survey.
