RFS protects YOUR FUTURE

The Resident and Fellow Section works for

•  Improved quality of resident life
•  Ensuring employment upon completion of residency
•  Protecting the huge investment you’ve made in your medical education

RFS advocates on your issues, and keeps you informed.

If time and interest allow, there are many opportunities within the AMA and MSSNY for residents. Besides two national meetings, residents are invited to join MSSNY committees or to get involved in the leadership of the RFS.
