Women in Medicine Webinar

Meeting Description:

“How to position yourself as a physician leader” is a timely and empowering webinar for women physicians. Although women represent nearly half of the medical school admissions, enrollees and graduates, they are not as well represented in leadership positions. Education on strategies to overcome barriers to professional advancement will help women physicians be better positioned to become leaders. Areas of opportunity to promote gender equity include training on leadership development, contract and salary negotiations, and career advancement strategies. Implementing these skills will improve your standing as a physician leader.
