Series description: 

The ISMA has introduced a monthly Women in Medicine (WIM) Discussion Forum to take the place of our 2022 Women in Medicine Retreat, which was canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sessions in this series will take place the third Tuesday of each month from 7 to 8 p.m. ET via Zoom. All female members of ISMA are welcome to join us to connect, network and discuss topics of special significance to female physicians today. Sessions will begin with a brief opening presentation, followed by a facilitated group discussion.

In order to receive CME credit, participants will need to complete the learner assessment survey (evaluation) for each session in which they participate.

Topic Description:  Career Path Options

Main discussion points:

  1. Consciously seek new skills or experiences to add to your career “toolbox.”
  2. Develop the ability and willingness to pivot in your career plan when life throws you a curve ball.
  3. Do what you love, and love what you do. (Examples: Advocacy and public health).
  4. Be aware of complementary roles or previous vocations that inform the practice of medicine.
  5. Commit to practicing introspection and self-reflection to help guide your career path.

Learning objectives:

  1. Describe successful strategies to build on skills from previous roles to improve your medical practice role.
  2. Identify ways to shift career plans, based on unexpected changes in plans.
  3. Discuss the impact of introspection and self-reflection on career satisfaction.
