(25th Annual Conference)


Successful Strategies for Women in Academic Medicine

FOCUS on Health & Leadership for Women, with the support of the Perelman School of Medicine and the Trustees' Council of Penn Women, cordially invites you to attend our 25th annual professional development conference, a unique opportunity for women faculty and their allies at Penn medicine to convene and network while learning important tools and strategies for success in academic medicine.  

A once-a-year opportunity to convene with Penn women colleagues and their allies, this celebrated professional development conference is for faculty and trainees in any rank, track, department or division. This includes faculty, instructors, lecturers, fellows and residents, MDs and PhDs; all are welcome and encouraged to attend. There is never an ideal time to step away from the clinic, lab or office, but this is the only chance to gather with a substantial group of your Penn women peers and take some time - for an excellent career development program with national experts  -  and for you.
