Young Physician Leadership Program

Connect with peers, develop leadership experience, and advance your career by participating in the Young Physician Leadership Program.

EDX can be a daunting and difficult subject, especially for early learners since it’s usually not an area that’s explored during medical school. Having a set of resources that are in one place and organized by the largest EDX organization is very helpful, both for the clinical side of learning as well as assessment/testing.
