Become an ABS EPA Program Champion and serve as a local leader for the ABS EPA Project
As the ABS moves forward with our EPA initiative, one thing has been abundantly apparent - the feedback that we receive from participants is invaluable. Without this feedback, we have no way to know what is or is not working, where information is unclear, or what can be improved. Additionally, local champions who serve as promoters and exemplars for the project will be critical to its success. That's where you come in!
We are looking for resident, program director and faculty volunteers from each general surgery residency program to become an "EPA Program Champion," serving as a local leader and liaison between your program and the ABS. You will be our direct line of contact with your program, and we will rely on you to provide feedback on how the implementation of EPAs is going.
First and foremost, your feedback will help to shape the future of surgical education. The valuable information that you and your program are able to provide will enhance the EPA program and trainee experience for years to come.
Second, this is a great role to add to your CV! Add any ABS volunteer positions that you are associated with to the "National Recognition" area of your CV.
