Residents have many questions to ponder regarding their future professional lives. What will medical practice look like? Will I be gainfully employed? What professionals, in addition to physicians, will be assisting me with patient care? How will I be able to place my patients before productivity and financial demands? Can I keep up with the onslaught of new medical information and technology?

Each year the National Consortium of Resident Organizations (NCRO) sponsors a forum for resident leaders from across the nation. The 1999 Forum, entitled Residents 2000: Training, Education and Practice, will attempt to answer some of the questions listed above. The forum will explore the future of US medicine by examining physician workforce issues and graduate medical education funding. It will be held September 25-26 at the Doubletree Hotel in Arlington, Va.
