Members-in-Training career forum: Career pathways
Free webinar: June 8 | 11 - 12:30pm ET
Audience: Researchers and clinicians at all career stages, with a special focus on Members-in-training.
Scientists and clinicians are under pressure to obtain grant support, conduct research, run a lab, maintain a clinical practice, and teach trainees. This workload is further compounded by individual life stressors. Concern about these competing pressures has resulted in a heightened awareness regarding burnout. This webinar convenes a panel of researchers and clinicians at various career stages to share their perspectives on developing your career to avoid burnout and the importance of work-life balance. Speakers will discuss major hurdles they have overcome and lessons-learned, and will share helpful resources.
This workshop will help attendees identify career challenges and skills to navigate a healthy work-life balance.
Attendees of this webinar will learn to:
- Identify career opportunities and challenges and focus on developing strategies to create a healthy work-life balance.
- Identify their transferable knowledge and skills as eye care professionals in both the clinic and in research.
- Understand the problems they might face when moving across the different career options, and how to best address these issues.
This webinar is hosted by the ARVO Members-in-Training Committee. A Certificate of attendance will be available to attendees upon request.
