The uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 has thrust meeting planning for medical education and graduate medical education communities into a new realm. Many countries, agencies, and institutions have banned travel through 2020 in large part because of sustained concerns that large group gatherings jeopardize personal and public health needs for social distancing. Accordingly, NRMP leadership has elected to move the Transition to Residency: Conversations Across the Medical Education Continuum conference to a VIRTUAL format. 

Although in-person meetings are ideal, the NRMP is committed to bringing stakeholders together this fall to discuss critical issues surrounding the transition to residency. Perhaps no time is more important than now to examine the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on that transition. NRMP is excited to:

  • identify stakeholders from both sides of the continuum who can present on the challenges COVID-19 has posed to the transition to residency and the solutions identified to address them;
  • work with invited speakers to link the current pandemic to their discussions about equity, wellness, and bias; and
  • encourage attendees to share the lessons they've learned and changes they are implementing to address the needs of the 2021 graduating class

The program agenda has been reformatted to a two-day meeting, and breakout session proposals ARE being accepted. This site will be updated regularly with information about the meeting program.

Note: The Pre-Conference Workshop will NOT be offered in 2020.

Target Audience

The target audience for this meeting includes GME program directors and coordinators, designated institutional officials, and medical school student affairs and academic affairs deans and faculty. Other professionals engaged in medical education research or clinical practice also are welcome.

This year, in light of much-needed conversation about the recommendations and innovations for engaging in medical education and clinical training during a pandemic, NRMP is opening the virtual meeting to learners. Please see the registration page for more information!

If you find you are unable to participate, we will honor cancellations according to the cancellation policy.
