National Conference and Exhibition


​Check out everything the Section on Early Career Physicians (SOECP) is doing at this year's National Conference & Exhibition in Chicago, IL. To many first-time attendees, the conference can be rather overwhelming. We've pulled out what we think you would want to be a part of:

SOECP Educational Program: This year the Section will be focusing on physician wellness as it relates to being a leader, as well as mindfulness techniques.

Physician Wellness - Maximizing Balance and Minimizing Burnout

Participants will learn practical tips and techniques for maintaining personal wellness throughout a career in pediatric medicine.  We will focus on maintaining wellness and avoiding burnout when taking on leadership roles, learning practical mindfulness techniques for practicing physicians, and how to avoid a lawsuit and deal with one when it arises while not sacrificing personal wellness and sanity.
