Residency Showcase:  A "Boothless" experience!

We want to reimagine the cumbersome virtual booth experience of COVID-19 in 2020 conferences by breaking down the barriers and the tech and making it about the people!  Your program coordinator will have automatic free registration as an attendee and each participating program will get one free full-conference registration.  We'll bring the students to you in organized two-hour windows, called "Showcases" and you supply the wow-factor, your people, to showcase your program live and in small group discussions as if we were in person. 

A custom website on the conference home page will enable attendees to do their research on your program, based on your information in your application and a link to your website for more details. So students will come prepared with questions and an idea of how they could fit well with your program when it's showcase time.  

Showcase Schedule: Each registered program can select which Showcases you would like to participate in when you submit your application.  Please note we may shift the student categories to better reflect balance in the total number of students in each showcase to keep it manageable for all involved.
