The Foundation and its Futures Program Sponsors are pleased to announce an exciting opportunity for residents, fellows and advanced practitioners who are interested in a career in post-acute and long-term-care medicine: the Futures Program. A recent graduate noted:
The Futures Program was an outstanding educational experience - I was able to meet peers from around the nation and share our goals and philosophies. The lectures gave us a solid framework for understanding what it takes to become a medical director. The Futures Program is fundamental for anyone planning a career in post-acute & long-term care medicine.
Held during AMDA's annual symposium each year, this intensive learning experience is designed to expose participants to the numerous career opportunities available in post-acute & long-term care medicine. All participants who are chosen for this program will receive the following benefits:
- Admission to the Futures Program on April 2, 2020
- 3-Day registration to AMDA-The Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine Annual Conference 2020, in Chicago, IL.
- One year of AMDA-The Society membership (includes FREE webinars) beginning in January 2020.
Access to a program dedicated to professional development, Futures participants will receive additional benefits each year when they renew their Society membership.
Participants will also enjoy:
Year 1: Complimentary Society membership, including FREE webinars
Year 2: Access to the Society's online library
Year 3: 25% off your registration to the Society's annual conference
Year 4: 25% discount for your online Core Curriculum registration
Year 5: 30% off a full set of CPGs or Medication Management book
In addition to the benefits listed above, participants who are granted a full award will also receive:
- Transportation to and from the meeting in accordance with Foundation travel policies
- Four nights lodging from April 1-4, 2020 (to be shared with one Futures Program participant)
Application Deadline is November 11, 2019
Due to funding constraints there are a very limited number of full awards available. Many fellowship and/or residency programs will pay for travel/lodging to one professional conference per year. Talk with your program director and let them know that this is THE Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine program to attend in 2020!
