Probably my favorite DDW memory was the first time a postdoc from my laboratory gave a talk at DDW. It was just a great moment of pride for me seeing my trainee stepping up onto that international stage.

My little corner of DDW examines the role of quality improvement and how trainees can be involved in that. It's something I look forward to participating in time and time again, and I use it as inspiration throughout the year to help me mentor trainees.

—Jason M. Brown, MD, DDW attendee


I’ve been coming to DDW since I was a medical student. I remember that feeling of awe when I first came. It’s amazing how much knowledge and experience in our field is concentrated here, and that hasn’t changed over the years.
