Professional Success in Health Care + Medicine: Advice for Mid-Career and Beyond

Thursday, April 23, 12-1 p.m.

Not only are health care and medicine among the most popular fields for UC alumni, these professions often top the list of occupations with the highest burnout rates. Join us in April 2020 for an in-depth e-conversation with fellow UC alumni working in health care and medicine to discuss positioning yourself for long-term professional success. From finding your professional fit and navigating career change to advancing into leadership positions or shifting away from patient-centered work, this panel will offer insights and advice to help you prepare for your next career steps.

Topics will include:

  • Maintaining balance between a demanding profession and personal priorities outside of work
  • Advice for those interested in teaching or seeking an academic appointment
  • How volunteer roles can contribute to professional development
  • Advice for those considering starting an independent business
