Resident Advocacy Program (RAP)


Resident Advocacy Program (RAP)Overview

The Resident Advocacy Program (RAP) helps Ob/Gyn residents gain a greater understanding of policy and political factors that shape the future of the specialty. The program will better prepare a new generation of physicians to influence the future of our healthcare delivery system and offers the opportunity to participate in the political process in the state capital of Albany, NY.

RAP consists of a two-day, one night trip to Albany for up to two residents per program and includes travel, lodging and select meals.

Interested residents should check-in with their Program Director for attendance approval and registration.
