    Welcome to your hub for all things Residency Leadership Summit. RLS is the only national event for both MDs and DOs that focuses solely on the needs of family medicine residency programs. RLS is also the place to prepare for the implementation of new ACGME requirements, learn best practices, share with peers, and improve the overall quality of your program.

    So, don’t miss your opportunity to learn from and connect with family medicine residency programs from across the nation at this in-person event. No matter your residency program role—director, faculty, or administrator—you can find information exclusively for family medicine residencies that supports both program and staff development. 

    Join a nationwide community of residency program leaders—program directors, faculty, and administrators—at the upcoming Residency Leadership Summit.  At this year’s LIVE event, we’re offering the actionable, inspiring ideas; key program updates; and vital networking opportunities that your team has come to expect and value over the years.

    Get access to practical strategies created exclusively for family medicine residencies and leverage shared experience to further build your team’s expertise and connections. Sessions are designed to inspire, support, and empower your program to understand and maintain compliance with evolving graduate medical education accreditation standards.
