Resident Outreach Initiative
New Program Alert!

Connecting with residents to introduce them
to Academy resources and benefits as they begin their career.

The Leadership Commission in collaboration with the Membership Commission is pleased to announce it's latest initiative, the Resident Outreach Initiative.

Residents! In the coming weeks, you will receive a survey requesting input about how NYSAFP can best serve you and what your membership priorities are. Your feedback is valuable and we look forward to your input.

Using the survey data, the program will reach out to residency programs across New York State to schedule sessions to address your needs and introduce you to the opportunities and benefits of NYSAFP membership.
