Attend BOG, SRF, WIO, and YPS General Assemblies in Philadelphia
The Academy’s Sections for Young Physicians (YPS), Residents and Fellows-in-Training (SRF), and Women in Otolaryngology (WIO) as well as the Board of Governors (BOG) invite you attend their respective General Assemblies during the AAO-HNSF 2022 Annual Meeting & OTO Experience in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Open to all who are registered for the Annual Meeting, join your colleagues for networking, information, and inspiration!
Saturday, September 10 4:00 pm (ET)
Attend the BOG General Assembly to network with your colleagues from local, state, regional, and national otolaryngology-head and neck surgery societies from around the United States and Canada. Cast your vote for new BOG officers and congratulate your colleagues on their Model Society and Practitioner of Excellence Awards. Learn more about how to advocate at the grassroots level, including a mock session, and participate in a panel discussion on strategies to build bridges and grow collaboration and effectiveness at the national, state, and local levels. Immediately following the General Assembly, inspire the next generation of otolaryngologists by participating in a speed mentoring event with medical students.
Sunday, September 11 3:15 pm (ET)
New in 2022! The SRF and YPS are cohosting a combined lecture on physician burnout and wellness featuring internationally recognized otolaryngologist Julie L. Wei, MD, founder of A Healthier Wei. Dr. Wei will discuss her personal and professional experience of extreme burnout to highlight and address system factors that erode physician well-being and career longevity. She has created immediate access to mental health support for trainees, physicians, and advanced practitioners in a health system, transformed healthcare culture to destigmatize mental health needs of physicians, and personally coached numerous physicians to achieve career development and life fulfillment.
Attendees participating in the short business meeting and lecture will be invited to a beer tasting and networking event.
Monday, September 12 11:45 am – 1:15 pm (ET)
Plan to have lunch with WIO, which is organizing an exciting lineup of activities and speakers during the upcoming General Assembly.
Keynote Naomi Rothman, PhD, will discuss the benefits of mixed emotions and the unexpected ways that people make higher quality decisions and influence others to do so through their use of emotions and power—specifically, how the experience and expression of complex emotions (e.g., emotional ambivalence) and complex states of power drive effective decision making.
Additional highlights include the presentation of the Helen F. Krause, MD, Trailblazer Award to a woman who has pioneered advances in the field; the Exemplary Senior Trainee Award, recognizing an outstanding female senior resident or fellow who demonstrates excellence in leadership, research, education, and mentoring; and the He for She Award, celebrating men in otolaryngology who emphasize the importance of teamwork, synergy, and building the profession together. The WIO General Assembly requires a ticket to the event, which you can add on during the registration process.
