Unique Opportunities


RWJBarnabas Health Leadership Forum is designed for the PGY1 and PGY2 residents in the RWJBarnabas system to gain experience and expertise in Leadership and Management in addition to their already established learning experiences. The topics taught are items that are not a part of traditional clinical training and gained by many on the fly or in a situational basis. Topics include: team building, collaboration, human resource management, goal setting, metrics, financial management, culture, business etiquette and networking. Through 6 off-site interactive sessions, residents are provided with dedicated time to review and develop these skills. Additionally, these sessions allow the formation of a deeper connection and relationship with the residents across the Enterprise.
