Women in Medicine Trainee Summit 2021

Welcome to Partners Healthcare Live Streaming March 6th, 2021
Time: 9:00 AM - 12:15 PM

We are excited to bring trainees and leaders in graduate medical education from across the country together to collectively advance the personal and professional development of women in medicine. In addition to women trainees, we invite program directors, program coordinators, division/department chairs and any other interested members of all genders to join us in discussing pitfalls and successes that programs have encountered. Through key speakers, we will learn how to implement changes across programs to strengthen the future of medicine. We cannot wait to learn from you all!
