Women Residents and Fellows Professional Development Program (WRFPDP)

The program for women residents and fellows is still in its infancy but we have held a number of career development events that pertain directly to the reality of transitioning from being house staff to an attending physician. These include a workshop on the pros and cons of working in private practice versus an academic medical center, communication and workplace dynamics, work-life integration and career timelines. These events will be rotated on an annual basis with extra events added as requested.
