Career-Stage Forum abstracts
Members may submit abstracts for Career-Stage Forums (except the New Training Director Forum) by logging into their account and clicking "Abstracts" on their dashboard. The 2025 theme focuses on leadership, so abstracts should incorporate that concept (i.e. mentoring/sponsoring, strategic thinking, conflict resolution, DEI, running an effective meeting, leading vs. managing through change). Forums offered are:

  • Future Training Director (intended for residents/fellows and those not currently a TD/ATD)
  • Early Career
  • Mid-Career
  • Late-Career
  • Lifer Gathering
