"The Institute left me with a feeling that change in our residency program is possible with the right support and infrastructure. It's enabled me to have some good conversations with our Board of Directors - and I feel that I'm now armed with information to make changes, and will start a business plan for professionalizing our residency program right away."

- Islay Taylor, 2015 Emerging Program Institute attendee
