TAFP Resident Leadership Experience
In today’s rapidly changing environment, health care enterprises need leaders who can anticipate what’s coming next, make solid decisions in the face of ambiguity, and deploy their talent effectively. At TAFP, we believe these leaders should be well-trained family physicians capable of articulating a compelling vision for the future and of winning the trust and support needed to carry out this vision.
Welcome to the Resident Leadership Experience, TAFP’s yearlong leadership development program designed to equip family medicine residents with the skills they need thrive in their future practice.
Through interactive learning sessions, didactic lectures, multimedia presentations, and small-group breakouts, the Resident Leadership Experience will provide expert training in:
- persuasive communication,
- negotiation and conflict resolution,
- public speaking, and
- winning media engagements.
Are you ready to gain the skills you need to enhance your leadership capacity? Join the Resident Leadership Experience.

Thank you to the American Board of Family Medicine for grant support during the first year of this program.
Over the course of the academic year, participants will attend two in-person sessions in Austin lasting one to two days, and multiple virtual sessions on weeknights and Saturdays. Participants must attend both in-person sessions to graduate from the program. The virtual sessions will be recorded when possible and made available for those who have rotation conflicts.
There is no tuition fee and TAFP and the TAFP Foundation will provide housing expenses and airfare reimbursement for participants who live more than 300 miles from Austin. TAFP provides meals and program materials during training.
Applications for the 2023-24 program are now being accepted. The deadline to apply is June 15, 2023.
Applicants must be TAFP resident members and should be starting their second or third year of residency. A workgroup from the TAFP Council on Workforce and Member Engagement will review all applications to compose the class. A maximum of 20 members will be selected to participate in the program.
Participants will be assigned to a small group with a mentor. The group will connect virtually in August to begin to get to know each other.
