1 Inspiring Leadership: A Follow-up Study Examining the Impact of the Tarrytown Chief Residents Leadership Conference Bruce J Schwartz, MD; Andrea Weiss, MD; Michelle A Blackmore, PhD Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Montefiore Medical Center Leaders in psychiatry often begin in the role of chief resident, making it important that tenure as chief provides a successful learning experience inspiring personal and professional growth. Experiential learning opportunities can directly prepare residents for the leadership demands in their role as chief, and in their future leadership endeavors. For 39 years, the Tarrytown Chief Residents Leadership Conference, held by the Dept of Psychiatry at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, has provided one of the leading forums in advanced experiential training. The 3-day conference allows for a unique opportunity to gain direct experience with interpersonal and group processes and exploration of leadership and management abilities through group experiential exercises. To examine the impact of this conference on preparing residents for future leadership positions, the authors examined self-report surveys from past attendees.
