AACPD Candidate – Saddawi-Konefka

Daniel Saddawi-Konefka, MD, MBA

Massachusetts General Hospital

I have served on the AACPD Council for the last two years. My goals in this role have been to advocate for Program Directors within our organization and with the ACGME. I have also endeavored to distill information in order to make it more understandable and usable for other program directors. This has included synthesizing program approaches to virtual interviewing prior to the 2020 interview season, synthesis and drafting of an AACPD stance on ACGME case minima to advocate for reasonable improvements, and hosting of panels at our national SAAAPM meetings.

I am committed to contributing to our society as Secretary of the AACPD. I have attended every SAAAPM meeting since I became Program Director. It is hands-down the most useful meeting for what we do day-to-day, owing to the content of the sessions and the networking opportunities. I strongly believe in the mission of the SAAAPM and am committed to representing Program Director needs and helping continue to elevate the caliber of our education, care and research. It would be a privilege to serve in as Secretary of the SAAAPM, and I look forward to the opportunity if elected.
