2022 SBAS Promotion and Progress Institute (PPI)
Location: Thirty-second Annual SBAS Meeting
The Society of Black Academic Surgeons is gearing up for its inaugural 2022 Promotion and Progress Institute (PPI) at the Thirty-second Annual SBAS Meeting.
The course will take place Thursday, September 15th from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.
The course is targeted towards medical students, residents and fellows, or junior faculty interested in research and will provide detailed information on launching an academic surgical career. Topics that will be covered include those that are broadly applicable to any type of research or surgical discipline, such as finding the right mentor, securing funding, finding clinical/research balance, designing, and implementing quality research, and communicating findings in writing and in person. Speakers will offer pearls of wisdom on establishing a clinical footprint, launching a research program, being effective educators, and developing a national profile. Specific topics of discussion will include negotiating a faculty position, finding appropriate mentors and sponsors, managing conflict, rising beyond complications and setbacks, and balancing academic, clinical, and personal responsibilities.
We ask that you encourage the students, residents, fellows, and junior/early-career faculty from your institution to attend these invaluable courses. The content is updated each year and every effort is made to include novel and “hot” topics – so consider a return visit if you have already attended. PPI was formerly Grant Writing & Review. Stay tuned for updated agenda.
