2015 The Pat Miller J-Fit Award
Want to submit a service project that you developed that made a difference for women and their healthcare providers?
A Junior Fellow Initiative is any project or program that you developed to make a difference for women and their health care providers including service projects such as supply drives, educational sessions, medical student recruitment, and lobby days.
A J-FIT is a detailed toolkit used to facilitate planning and carrying-out a specific Junior Fellow Initiative.
The goal of Project J-FIT is to compile these ideas, projects and programs and post them on the ACOG Junior Fellow webpage which will serve as an online resource accessible to all Junior Fellows for planning future Initiatives.
One winner will be selected to receive a $2,500 prize to present their toolkit at the Junior Fellow Breakfast Business Meeting during the 2016 Annual Clinical & Scientific Meeting in Washington, DC, May 14—18, 2016.
ONLINE SUBMISSIONS ONLY
Guidelines and submission information can be found on ACOG’s Junior Fellow Website by searching “The Pat Miller Junior Fellow Initiative Toolkit Contest (J-FIT)” at www.acog.org. The deadline for submitting a toolkit on-line is November 30, 2015.

Junior Fellow News
Christopher Luke Dixon, MD
Junior Fellow Chair
This is a very exciting time of year for the Junior Fellows. Many of us have recently returned from the Annual Clinical and Scientific Meeting in San Francisco, where there was a strong District XII junior fellow and medical student presence. It was a great educational experience for all.
We can now shift our focus to our third Annual District Meeting, which will take place August 14–16, 2015, at the Boca Raton Resort and Club in Boca Raton, Fla. Our junior fellow and medical student involvement exceeded expectations in 2014 and I hope to continue the trend of this exponential rise in involvement in 2015. This year, we are offering even more junior fellow and medical student activities.
On the morning of Saturday, August 15, we will hold our first-ever junior fellow roundtable session. We will have discussions in a roundtable setting about preparing for oral boards/written boards, transitioning to practice, applying for fellowship, and early financial planning. This will be a great resource for our Junior Fellows about to graduate from residency or those who recently graduated.
For the medical students, we are glad to welcome back our residency fair. There will be representatives from all residency programs in District XII. This year we will be offering even more skills stations at our medical student skills workshop. We are also including a fun competitive event titled, “The Labor Games.”
As a reminder, registration to the Annual District Meeting is free for District XII Junior Fellows. Medical students interested in attending, please be on the lookout for emails detailing how to apply for funding (partial or full) through the John Gibbons Award. I hope to see you all at the 2015 District XII Annual District Meeting.
