PGYP Central Region December 2019

The Central Region of the Professional Guidance committee held its winter meeting of the year on December 17, 2019 at the POMA Central Office in Harrisburg.  Seven residents/interns, four attendings, and two POMA staff were in attendance.

After a round of introductions, the attendees were encouraged to apply for the POMA Foundation’s scholarships and were informed about POMA’s scholarly activity opportunities available for residents/interns.  The scientific poster day, clinical writing contest, and presentations at local district meetings were all met with enthusiasm.  In addition, a few of the residency programs who were awarded grant money from the Physician Wellness Committee provided overviews of their upcoming projects.

The attendees also enjoyed time to ask questions relative to next steps in their training and futures.  Board certification, recruiters, contracts, leadership and workplace culture were all discussed.  Thanks to everyone who joined us!

The Central Region’s next meeting will be March 24, 2020 at the POMA Central Office.
