2013 CREOG Education Retreat
CREOG Celebrates its 25th Education Retreat
July 18-19, 2013
CREOG is celebrating its 25th Education Retreat July 18-19, 2013 at the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel in Baltimore, Maryland. CREOG's original goals were to develop a forum for residency program directors; to develop an annual in-training examination to evaluate both residents and programs; to provide a consultation service by which individual programs can be assisted in correcting deficiencies; and to develop educational packages for residency programs. Today, CREOG continues to fulfill its objectives, meeting the challenges as they change with time. Although the scope of CREOG activities has broadened over the years, the main objective has remained. The theme of the 2013 Education Retreat is Perspective: Back up and leap forward. Dr. Mark Woodland, CREOG's Program Chair, has planned an informative meeting that will be both educational and inspirational.
As always, the Retreat provides resident educators nationwide the opportunity to interact with the CREOG Council and allows participants to communicate on various mutual issues of interest and concern. Along with the updates from the ABOG and the RRC, participants will learn the progress of the Milestones project in resident education, and learn options for utilizing existing evaluation systems to address the Ob/Gyn Milestones; understand the rational for the ACGME moving to NAS and initiating the CLER process, and develop strategies to deal with the problem resident; describe the importance of Emotional Intelligence on professional success and leadership and how to implement an EI focus into medical education.
CREOG has reserved a block of sleeping rooms for the CREOG Education Retreat at the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel. Located in central Baltimore, the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace overlooks the Baltimore Inner Harbor and all its restaurants and attractions. Referred to as Charm City, Baltimore offers a diverse pallet of exploration. Baltimore's character is a result of its rich history, once the 2nd largest port of entry for immigrants to the US, and it remains a city of neighborhoods. One of the most popular areas, Downtown Baltimore, is the city's main commercial district, home to Camden Yards, USS Constellation, the National Aquarium, and host to the annual Baltimore Grand Pix races.
