For residency coordinators, giving a presentation can be a valuable opportunity to share information with colleagues, as well as demonstrate professional development. When deciding on a topic to present, GME consultant Ruth Nawotniak, MS, C-TAGME, says coordinators should consider their audience. When giving a national presentation, coordinators should address broader topics to attract more interest. These topics may cover things like resident recruitment or clinical competency committee management. On the other hand, a grand rounds presentation should cover a narrower topic, such as sharing program interview data or Match data.

Also, coordinators should stick to their strengths when choosing a presentation topic, Nawotniak says. “For a coordinator who wants to present, I think the most important thing to remember is you are presenting something you know. Be confident in knowing your topic. You wouldn’t be presenting it if you didn’t know it.”
