Resident Speakers

Each year KAFP reserves several 15 minute CME time slots for Resident Presentations; an opportunity for Kansas family medicine residents to gain speaking experience and scholarly activity.  The goals of the Resident Presentations are:

  • To provide residents the opportunity to give an Annual Meeting presentation that will help fulfill their scholarly activity requirements;
  • To provide interesting CME for meeting attendees;
  • And to build residents’ awareness of and interest in KAFP and the Annual Meeting.
Topics Requested

KAFP will send each Kansas Family Medicine Residency Program Director a list of requested topics.  We respectfully request that residents consider topics from this list.

Time Slots & Allocation

Twelve 15-minute Resident Presentation time slots are available. The Professional Development Committee has determined that each residency program will be allocated a proportionate amount of time slots based on the number of residents in each program.

  • KU Kansas City: 3 presentations
  • Smoky Hill: 1 presentation
  • Via Christi: 5 presentations
  • Wesley: 3 presentations

Each Family Medicine Residency Program Director is responsible for selecting (through whatever means they feel fit) the resident(s) to present on behalf of their program.  KAFP requests that the program director or a faculty designee be assigned to each resident to assist in the preparation and practice of this presentation.

Deadline for Application

The deadline to submit speakers for 2018 Resident Presentations has expired. Residency Program Directors will be notified when 2019 applications are being accepted.

Additional Expectations of Resident Speakers
  • Resident speakers and their assigned faculty supervisors are expected to rehearse their presentation in advance.
  • Resident speakers are expected to attend a minimum of one-half day of the Annual Meeting and listen to other presentations.  They are welcome to attend the entire meeting if they wish.
Stipend & Travel

The KAFP-Foundation provides a $100 stipend for each resident presentation. This will be paid directly to the resident. Resident speakers will receive complimentary registration to the Annual Meeting.  Per KAFP policy, speakers traveling more than 60 miles from their home to the conference hotel will receive one complimentary night stay for each presentation given.  Resident speakers are not eligible for mileage reimbursement for travel.
