Annual AGP and HM Fellows Conference at PAS


The annual Pediatric Academic Generalist and Hospitalist Medicine Fellows' Conference is a wonderful opportunity for all fellows, specifically Academic General and Hospital Medicine Pediatric Fellows and Program Directors from around the country to network, to develop professionally and to share scholarly interests in research, education, quality improvement or advocacy. The conference is supported and underwritten by the Academic General Pediatric Fellowship Accreditation Committee of the Academic Pediatric Association. It is held annually on the Thursday prior to the Pediatric Academic Societies (PAS) Meeting.

The AGP Fellow's conference is also designed for program directors, associate program directors and other leadership personnel. Faculty leadership will participate in discussion groups with the fellow participants as well as serve as facilitators for workshops.

Additionally, all fellow and faculty members who participate will be able to create an academic network to enhance professional communication, growth, feedback, and advancement in their career.

The purpose of the conference is to create a gathering of the national community of generalist fellows and faculty of the APA. We aim to build camaraderie across programs, provide valuable networking opportunities, offer high caliber workshops to potentially supplement local program offerings, and provide a forum in which fellows can share and receive constructive feedback on their scholarly works in progress.
