2022 Recognizing Residents Week

Today’s residents and fellows face extreme training challenges spurred by current events and recent legislation regarding abortion, gun control and scope of practice rights. The AMA is committed to supporting resident training and protecting careers in medicine.

To address growing concerns, the AMA hosted a residents town hall on Wednesday, July, 27, at 8 p.m. CT. This special hour-long event featured residents and young practicing physician leaders and provided timely policy updates.

Participants asked real-time questions during the interactive Q&A in this unprecedented town hall.
