 Association of American Medical Colleges Organization of Resident Representatives (ORR)

The ORR was established in 1991 as an integral component of the AAMC’s governance structure, serving as one of the five governing arms to provide a venue for resident physicians to have input into the development of AAMC policy. The ORR is also designed as a leadership opportunity for residents interested in academic medicine, serving as a vehicle for professional development activities for its members. The members of the ORR are appointed by Council of Academic Societies members representing either department chairs or program directors. Each eligible society appoints two residents for a two-year term

For Residents

Resident Teaching Skills Manual

This manual, created by Jeffrey E. Pettit, PhD, Office of Consultation and Research in Medical Education, University of Iowa, is intended to be a resource to assist residents in their day-to-day teaching encounters. It is intended to: 1) provide “how – to” guidelines for the novice and experienced teaching resident, 2) identify additional resources [with information pertinent to educating others], and 3) be a quick reference guide for common teaching situations. (Note: this resource is available to the UAMS community only, therefore you must be on-campus or enter your UAMS global login information when prompted.)

FIRST for Residents

FIRST is designed to help members of the academic medicine community navigate the complexities of student debt. We help medical school borrowers expand their financial literacy, make smart decisions about student loans and manage their student debt wisely.
