Drs. Chen and Scholl complete the FPS RIPPLE Program

Chen and Scholl

Pauline Chen, MD and Robert Scholl, DO graduated from the inaugural Florida Psychiatric Society’s (FPS) leadership training program for psychiatric chief residents, Residents in Psychiatry Programs: Leadership Experience (RIPPLE). This program was designed to equip chief residents with the tools and experiences to help them succeed in leadership positions. 

Over the course of three sessions, Chief Residents will participate in engaging small group exercises and modules via both in-person and video conferencing formats (with consideration given to safe pandemic practices) that will allow participants to learn from psychiatry Chief Residents across Florida, including University of Florida Associate Professor, Ludmilla Barbosa deFaria, MD.

Under the leadership and support of skilled faculty members who represent a diverse area of backgrounds and scopes of practice, it is the goal that Chief Residents graduate from the program with the following: 

  • A certification of their leadership credentials. 
  • Foundational skills for creating effective and lasting impact in their leadership role. 
  • Hands-on practice for identifying challenges and creating development plans. 
  • Opportunities to network with mentors and peers from other residency programs. 
  • An understanding of the framework of the Florida Psychiatric Society.
