Greetings Region 4,

Just a friendly reminder about the upcoming Region 4 conference. Registration is filling up fast! Please register and ask a colleague to register as well. Don't forget your medical students, residents, and fellows.

If you have submitted abstracts to PAS, we strongly encourage you to submit your abstract to the regional conference. It's a great event to practice and receive valuable feedback!

The Region 4 conference online registration and abstract submission site is open. More information about the upcoming APA Region 4 conference in February....

The 2016 Academic Pediatric Association Region IV Annual Conference website for registration and abstract submission is now open!

Please forward this message to all academic general or hospitalist pediatric faculty, fellows, residents and medical students at your institution as this meeting is a great venue for networking and connecting with other academic general pediatricians in the Mid-Atlantic region.

  • Our meeting will be from 11AM Saturday, February 20 to noon on Sunday, February 21, 2016 at the Omni Hotel, Charlottesville (212 Ridge McIntire Rd, Charlottesville, VA 22902).
  • To register, visit our website: https://www.academicpeds.org/secure/meeting/region4meeting/index.cfm

Meeting Highlights:

  • Keynote Address How Do I Know I Am Teaching Effectively? By Larrie Greenberg, MD
  • APA National Update
  • Washington, DC Update from Bob Hall
  • New this year---Speed Mentoring: Modeled after the successes at PAS and PHM, we will have designated mentors in the areas of career development, clinical research, educational scholarship and teaching skills development, health services research, leadership skills, quality improvement scholarship, balancing research and clinical duties, and community based research. Mentees will have chance to visit each of the mentors that they have chosen. It will be a fast paced 60 minutes! When you register, don't forget to complete the Survey Monkey to identify yourself as a mentor or a mentee.
  • Original research and advocacy presentations: This is a chance for trainees and faculty to "test the waters" on their presentations before PAS. Plus, there will be PAS travel awards for winning trainee presentations.
  • Breakfast with the Professors: Great opportunity for informal mentoring on a variety of topics important to consider early on in an academic pediatric career.

Details about abstract submission: Guidelines for abstract submission can be downloaded from the registration website: https://www.academicpeds.org/secure/meeting/region4meeting/index.cfm. However, all presenters of selected abstracts must eventually register and pay the registration fee to present, and presentation is required to be considered for a trainee award.

Looking forward to seeing you there, Saturday, February 20 to Sunday, February 21, 2016 at the Omni Hotel in Charlottesville, VA.
