The Network provides training and resources for all the Lead Residents in the family medicine residency programs in the WWAMI region. Once a year, Leads gather in a two-day conference in Seattle, WA, to share ideas and resources, learn new leadership skills, and develop relationships for ongoing collaboration. Information about the upcoming conference is below.

Annual Lead Residents Conference

2021 Lead Residents Conference
This year, we have moved to a virtual model with the first all-day session May 4-5, 2023; followed by a second session on September 22, 2023.

Chief Residents Conference

This popular, interactive conference is for the express purpose of bringing together current and incoming Lead Residents for a time of interaction, dialogue, and information exchange. Current Leads will share their perception of roles, responsibilities and duties. Incoming Leads will have opportunities for one-on-one sessions with other chiefs and faculty to help equip them for their new role.
