                                                          (former attendee)

This course is designed to prepare the new Chief Resident and was created in response to requests for
in-depth training for Family Medicine Chief Residents as they begin their new responsibilities.

Individuals selected to be chief resident frequently possess natural ability to function in this role but often
receive little or no formal training. This course increases the effectiveness of Chief Residents by developing
their management and leadership skills.

Faculty: The nationally renowned Patricia D. Williams, M.D. is a consultant in human interaction and
organization development. She practiced Family Medicine and taught at the Maine-Dartmouth Family Practice Residency before training intensively at NTL Institute for Applied Behavioral Science.
She is a member of NTL and on the faculty of Jefferson Medical College and American University.
