Dates: September 25 (Friday) and 26 (Saturday), 2020 REGISTER HERE

Location: Webinar-Based

Background: As you know, BNGAP Inc. celebrated it’s 10th Anniversary this past winter. Much of the conference content focused on Pre-Faculty Development – To provide trainees with foundational self-efficacy, knowledge, skills, and experiences to be successfully appointed, and eventually promoted and tenured within an academic institution. (Sánchez JP and Williams V, 2019.)  One of the many conference outcomes was initiating the development of a document entitled White Paper: Pre-Faculty Development for Groups Under-represented in Academic Medicine. Thank you to the countless trainees, faculty, and senior administrators for helping to draft this report. This report will be shared during the national conference.

This conference brings together trainees, faculty, and senior leaders to share and discuss activities and best practices to better prepare trainees (e.g. college, graduate, post-doctoral) to consider, pursue and ultimately succeed as future educators, researchers, and clinical faculty at our institutions.  This conference is designed for health professionals (M.D., D.O., Ph.D., Ed.D., P.A.-C., R.N., N.P., D.M.D., social workers, psychologists, etc.), educators, researchers and trainees (pre-health professions, professional schools, and graduate).  Important activities and deadlines to note include:

The WEBINAR-BASED conference will include the following components

• Panel discussion of each chapter of the white paper

• Critical Transitions Workshops: Finding an Academic Residency, Academic Fellowship or First Academic Position (these workshops are designed for our trainees as they transition educational and career levels and for faculty/administrators interested in learning how to advise their trainees)

• Presentation of Junior/Health Professional/Organizational & Institutional Leadership and Pre-Faculty Excellence Awards (APPLY HERE for awards by September 1, 2020)

*All participants who attended the 10th Anniversary Celebration will have FREE registration. All official BNGAP Chapter Members will have FREE registration.

*Otherwise the cost of registration is the following: college student – $20 dollars; graduate student – $30; resident/fellow – $40; faculty, administrators, staff – $60.
