Let your original research help fund your career path!
Early Career Professionals are invited to submit their burgeoning research projects in gynecologic oncology Aug. 15, 2014, through Oct. 13, 2014, to be considered for a special presentation at the Early Career Educational Summit: Secrets for Success on Dec. 12-13, 2014, at the Robert H. Lurie Medical Research Center of Northwestern University in Chicago. If your submission is chosen, your project will be presented as part of a workshop by a respected gynecologic oncologist and you will receive free registration for the course!
These research presentations will take place during scheduled presentation times by highly regarded physicians in the field of gynecologic oncology. This is an outstanding opportunity for young leaders to have their own career development concerns and questions addressed by leaders in the field who have already successfully navigated these obstacles. This will also provide an excellent forum for Residents and Fellows to learn from their peers’ circumstances and progress.
The Early Career Educational Summit Planning Committee will review the submitted career development question, in a blinded review for relevance to the field of gynecologic oncology, current clinical and practice trends, and applicability of the topic. There will be two (2) submissions selected for presentation and discussion. Grading will be based on content, originality, and potential impact on the field.
