I appreciate your reply. Just so I am understanding you correctly, the free dinner is what would make you skeptical about the information being provided? If the Dinner and Learn was not free, would that make you less skeptical?
You are correct in that the Dinner and Learns would not be specific to specialties, that's not what they are intended for. They would be geared more towards providing information on finding placements etc. after a residency is completed or any other topics that residents tell us they feel would be useful.
We understand that programs often offer education on many things and that mentors and classmates are a wonderful resource for information, however, it is our experience that residents often feel like they need extra help in certain areas especially when their residency is completed so we have been looking for additional ways to help them.
If you do have suggestions on some other topics that might be useful for a resident who is interested in attending a dinner and learn, we would love to hear them!
Again, I appreciate your reply. All feedback is useful to us and helps us to figure out how to tailor our programs.
