Virtual Joint Academic Day and Match Statistics

May 2020 Volume LV Number 3

2020 Virtual Joint Academic Day
 
Plan on virtually meeting up with your colleagues for the 2020 Virtual Joint Academic Day being held on Wednesday, May 20, 2020. With the change from the live meeting, we have condensed the schedule and will not have separate afternoon sessions for the pre and post docs. However, we made sure to maintain topics relevant for both pre- and post-doctoral program directors, as well as added topics to help everyone navigate the world we are currently living in due to COVID-19. We look forward to you participating in what is sure to be an informative and enlightening session.
