The following is a special edition of the North Carolina Medical Society (NCMS) Bulletin focused on our 2015 Annual Meeting, which was held last weekend (Oct. 23-24) at the Grandover Resort in Greensboro. As is our Society’s longstanding tradition – this was our 161st Annual Meeting — the gathering brought together hundreds of NCMS members from across the state to reconnect, network, learn and share their common experiences. This year’s theme was “Resilience in Challenging Times.” Two CME sessions brought to light the problem of burnout and ways doctors and physician assistants can better cope with the challenges they face in order to be more fulfilled professionally and in their personal lives. Beyond the CME and the convening of the House of Delegates, smaller gatherings included meetings of the Community Practitioner Program participants, the Leadership College and the Women in Medicine section and much more. We hope you were able to be part of this ongoing tradition, but, if not, you can read all about it here.
