New Feature:
My Experience in Residency and Fellowship - Share your Story!

The Residents Committee has developed a new opportunity for Residents to share their experiences in a public forum, a webpage "by the Resident/Fellow members for the Resident/Fellow members" . The Chapter is seeking essays by Resident and Fellow Members to be posted on the Resident's page of NYACP's website. This information must be de-identified prior to submission, there can be no identification of patient or other involved healthcare providers, location of care or dates. This feature is being created to share with other residents in similar situations.  We will feature one essay per month expressing your day to day work life experience, such as, but not limited to one of the following examples:

  • My first experience with: loss of a patient, running a Code/RRT or reviving a life
  • My successful experience in coaching a patient in smoking cessation
  • Partnering with a patient facing medical, social, psychological, and/or physical challenges
  • My best practices for partnering with a bereaving family or as they navigate a challenging medical scenario
  • First time I was called to read an EKG
  • Career and job planning
  • How I am preparing for the Boards

If you have an experience you would like to submit as an essay, please use the following form (400 word limit): Submission Form

What's in it for you?

Your essay would be featured on the Chapter's Website.  We would ask for a small bio and picture for the introduction. This is an informal tool that will allow residents to express their experiences, seek input and receive recognition for their hard work. Please feel free to contact Karen Tucker at if you have any questions.
