I had an amazing first day in beautiful Telluride, CO! It was so great to get to meet my fellow MedStar residents and the host of other residents, physicians, and staff members. It is so rewarding that we are all here for a common cause and I feel grateful to be involved. I really enjoyed Paul Levy’s negotiations lectures. I realized that negotiating is something we do on a daily basis and may even be doing so without realizing that it is even a negotiation! It was helpful to step away from clinical scenarios and approach the topic from a different perspective. I can’t wait to take back what I’ve learned, and am excited for day 2!
