This one-and-a-half-day course held at the Robert H. Lurie Medical Research Center of Northwestern University in Chicago is designed to balance the scientific and clinical education with career development. There will be a special focus on what to expect in preparing for and taking exams, researching and funding for research, negotiating the many levels of practice and practice environments, determining specific career paths, and how these elements combine to impact treatment and patient outcomes. There will also be an opportunity in several forums to interact with SGO leadership and faculty who have developed successful careers in academic medicine and community practice.
At the conclusion of the course learners will be able to:
- Demonstrate effective techniques for defining a career in gynecologic oncology in order to effectively develop specialties to ensure a professionally and personally fulfilling career.
- Demonstrate successful paradigms for procuring funding through contract negotiation and grants.
- Review necessary steps to successfully transition from early career to more advanced practice.
This educational activity is developed to meet the needs of gynecologic surgeons, OB/Gyn Residents and Fellows, and Junior Faculty.
