The Kingston Resuscitation Institute (KRI) hosts a Leadership Series for senior residents. The purpose of this series is to develop promising senior trainees for future leadership roles and to stimulate their interest in leadership. The series addresses some of the CanMEDS roles shared by all of our training programs that are difficult to address in the regular clinical setting, including the Physician as Communicator, Collaborator, Manager and Professional. The KRI also hosts a Residents’ Medical Education Seminar Series that takes place over the Fall and Winter months. The purpose of the series is to engage learners with theoretical frameworks, curricula development, principles of teaching, assessment strategies, program evaluation, research, and remediation processes.
A Chief and Senior Resident Workshop is offered in May to all residents in these leadership positions. In particular, sessions on leadership and conflict management address effective and appropriate management, administration, and leadership skills. Chief Residents are selected residents who are full members of the Residency Program Committee (RPC). In this role, s/he is responsible for bringing the concerns of other residents to RPC meetings.
