Career Progression and Life Management (Career-Family Balance)

LIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke This

This series is sponsored by the Office of Fellowship Training (OFT), and based on a model developed by Drs. Lydia Shrier and Jenifer Lightdale, who host a Faculty Career and Family Network Luncheon Series. The program includes a series of informal networking lunches, addressing those balancing a career in academic medicine and family life. Co-chairs work together to plan the monthly meetings, whether an informal discussion or inviting a speaker. The information that fellows share with the OFT is used to encourage constructive changes at Boston Children's Hospital.
