APA-Region V Annual Meeting

This year the annual APA Region V meeting was held at Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago IL. It was well attended by over 80 participants. We were fortunate to have the president of APA, Dr. Susan Bostwick MD, MEd, MBA, introduce the benefits of APA membership for both the faculty and the trainees. The keynote speech by pediatric cardiologist and current Dean of Loyola’s Stritch School of Medicine, Dr. Steve Goldstein MD PhD was well attended by pediatric faculty, fellows, residents, and medical students. Additional speaker topics included the latest information on "Viability of extremely preterm infants", "Emotional intelligence", and the use of "QI projects in clinical settings". Dr. H Barrett Fromme MD, MHPE held a stimulating and educational workshop on "Teaching scripts" that was a hit with the attendees. The top three winners for each training level in both categories, Case presentation and Original science, gave oral presentations at the Regional Conference. The top winner for each category has been invited to present at the Regional Breakfast at the 2018 Pediatric Academic Societies Meeting in Toronto, Canada (May 5-8, 2018). Over 30 abstracts from Region V attendees were presented at the poster session in the evening. Overall it was very successful meeting.
