Navigating your career: Essential skills for the modern physician

Establish a clear vision for your career path – and the path of others
Course description

Career development is an essential skill for all physicians. Understanding your aspirations, the opportunities available and the skills you need to reach your goals will help you establish a clear vision of your career path. These skills will help you better navigate change and will ensure you derive the greatest benefit from your professional training.

In this program, participants will apply contemporary career management theories to the benefit of their own careers. Participants will use an evidence-based framework and practical management tools to explore career aspirations, and expand their network.

This course covers related issues of mobility, dual careers, and more.
