Read on to learn how….

Currently I’m a lead faculty coach for AMWA ELEVATE Certificate in Leadership for Women Physicians and incoming program director for EVOLVE Certificate in Leadership for Trainees. In these programs, I help physicians craft their career plans through proven strategies of professional coaching, psychology, and design.

Physicians have many options for professional growth after obtaining their degrees. However, we often get stuck on one path and may lack the tools to explore options to help serve us better.

At the upcoming AMWA 109th Annual Meeting, I am leading a workshop, Create a Career You Don’t Want to Escape From, providing several strategies that give participants time to reflect and establish the first steps to a career in medicine that will bring more joy. With a varied format including didactic, reflection, and interactivity, you can start to craft your journey.

We’ll also explore Positive Psychology concepts and frameworks to create the career you want and use the Design School process to determine actionable next steps to create your ideal career. You can achieve her career goals through dedication, perseverance, and strategic planning.

With clear objectives you can seek opportunities for growth and advancement, and actively cultivate a supportive network of mentors and allies. Join me won’t you?!  Look at the amazing program of compelling topics, great speakers and time to network on our Interactive  Annual Meeting —Thriving. Leading. Transforming: Securing Your Future in the Evolving Landscape of Medicine. No need to spend time and money traveling, this year we meet virtually from March 22nd to March 24th.
