About the Conference
The goal of this educational activity is to facilitate personal and professional growth by empowering attendees with actionable strategies and inspirational conversation with other women in surgery. This is an opportunity for women surgeons to connect and grow together over an impactful two days related to a variety of featured topics.
Practice Gaps and Needs
Women physicians and surgeons report higher levels of burnout, lower levels of professional fulfillment, and are less likely to be in leadership positions than male physicians. This course will use validated measures to help participants learn about their own biases, characteristics, and individual leadership strengths and weaknesses.
Intended Audience and Scope of Practice
This activity is designed to educate female surgeons and surgeons in training about research based advances in wellness and professional development in medical settings.
Elements of Competence
This CE activity has been designed to improve learner competence and focuses on the American Board of Medical Specialties’ areas of practice-based learning and improvement, interpersonal and communication skills, and professionalism.
At the conclusion of the activity, the healthcare team will be able to:
• Identify at least three (3) factors for burnout and develop a plan to address each factor.
• Describe two (2) skills for responding to microaggressions and denote which one they will incorporate into their practice.
• State the importance of accountability in establishing wellness and leadership goals.
