Annual Conference Highlight: Keynote Topic – Insights into Personal Effectiveness

Join us for an engaging and informative session to learn how Insights can aid communication among team members, and enhance self-discovery. Teams that can readily adapt and connect with each other are significantly more likely to achieve project goals and meet deadlines. Learn how Jungian psychology can be applied easily to facilitate effective communication among teams. Insights, the global leader in Jungian based psychometric assessments, has been experienced by more than one million people worldwide, in over 30 languages.

An Insights keynote, delivered by Scott Schwefel, will be an energetic and engaging session, and the knowledge and tools you will receive will allow you to benefit from the session indefinitely. At the end of the session, participants will describe, and label themselves based on Jungian principles of personality.

Residency Education Resources Now Available

ASPR is pleased to provide our members with resources to help educate residents and fellows on a variety of topics which will assist them with their job search as they transition from training to practice. These resources will help you empower residents and fellows as they launch and manage their job search. Our hope is that ASPR members will provide education at their local and regional training programs and refer residents and fellows to the ASPR website to connect directly with our members.

You will find these resources in the Member Resources section of the ASPR website. You will find several PowerPoint presentations for residents as well as some geared toward Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners. You will also find some additional documents that are available to download and share with residents that cover individual topics in more detail. Our “toolbox” also provides recommendations on how to use the resources and tips on gaining access to training programs.

ASPR would like to acknowledge and thank the following organizations that contributed to the development of these presentations and resources:

  • Baystate Health
  • Bright Health Physicians of PIH
  • Cleveland Clinic Foundation
  • Dean Clinic
  • Duke Medicine
  • The Nebraska Medical Center
  • Upstate New York Physician Recruiters
