The MPPDA Executive Committee is interested in mentoring and providing useful resources to all of our members.  The following links provide some highly useful information for both new and experienced program directors to consider in planning for the administrative and educational aspects of program direction.  We are in the early stages of developing a comprehensive Med-Peds Program Director Resource Manual as well.  If you are in need of additional materials or would like to share resources that have been useful to you in the past, please comment below or email us at [email protected].
