Career Advancement and Leadership Skills for Women in Healthcare
November 17, 2016 - November 19, 2016
There is a longstanding gap in the development and promotion of women as healthcare leaders. Although some progress has been made, reports generally demonstrate the progress is slow and women continue to face many challenges in their healthcare careers that limit their ability to be promoted. Even when they are promoted, they often have not been offered the formal training and mentoring that will help them to be successful.
Developing leadership skills is an important aspect of career advancement for all healthcare professionals; however, physicians and other healthcare professionals often do not receive formal training. Women lag behind men in leadership training, roles, and compensation. This course is designed to teach women in healthcare what they need to be successful now and in the future.
