You might find yourself humbled by those flashes of obvious that you might have been overlooking. Ultimately, being a mentor makes you a better leader.

Description: AMION is a scheduling system that was designed specifically for residency scheduling. Designed in 1997 by Stuart Karon, who has a masters degree in computer sciences, when his wife, a then pediatric chief resident, was trying to create a call schedule for her program. The system took off and is now used by many programs and hospitals alike. In 2001, my program began using AMION for scheduling. I arrived at my program in 2006, and we have used AMION ever since. Other systems have been introduced to my program, required by one entity or another, (AMCOM, New Innovations, QGenda, Google Calendars, and others), but AMION has remained as our programs scheduling Bible. I in no way suggest that I am an expert in the ways of AMION, but rather someone who is fairly well versed in the available features and we have incorporated most of these into our schedules. This session is an open forum, it will begin with a brief demonstration of live schedule(s), and leave significant time for questions and answers. 1.5 hours have been reserved for this session, but end time will be dependent upon questions. The offering of this session in no way suggests endorsement for AMION by AFMA. This is a service being offered to AFMA members by others who have experience with the AMION system. AFMA acknowledges that there are many scheduling systems available in the GME world as different as each program is, so are the software applications available.
Objective: Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to: 1. know what features are available on AMION 2. how they could be applied within their program.
