This session addresses scenarios in which a leader is required to respond to the poor performance of a team member, from clinical or outcomes problems to inter-personal/behavioral issues. Our panel of seasoned experts will provide specific responses to the scenarios and general principles to guide leaders in selecting the most effective response to these common challenges.

|SESSION CHAIRS: Mio Kitano, MD, MS and Ankush Gosain, MD, PhD|
As academic surgeons, we are taught to diagnose surgical conditions and hone our technical skills, however none of our training prepares us for how to manage the interface of the ever-evolving digital age and our academic practice. If you are an academic surgeon or are in-training to become one, this session will show you how to leverage technology to enhance your personal portfolio and advance your research and clinical programs, and how to avoid common social media pitfalls.
Introduction – Mio Kitano, MD, MS
|12:05 pm – 1:30 pm||Hot Topic Lunch Session: Coach Them Up! Mental Skills Training for Surgeons|
|SESSION CHAIRS: Dimitrios Stefanidis, MD, PhD and Nicholas Anton, MS|
The goal of this session is to provide an interactive forum to help surgical faculty and residents understand the effects of stress and other psychological barriers on surgeons’ performance and wellbeing, discuss the potential benefits of applying mental skills and mindfulness-based skills with surgeons to mitigate stress and optimize performance, and practice mental skills (i.e., energy and attention management skills, and mindfulness-based techniques) for peak surgical performance. It is our goal that participants of this session will be able to learn or refine existing strategies to limit their performance deterioration under stressful conditions, and enhance their wellbeing and executive function.
