Activity Description:

This one-and-a-half day course is intended to address continued under-representation of women leaders in cardiology and cardiothoracic surgery. Attendees will be able to apply their own strategic decision-making skills, leadership competencies and personal effectiveness in the management of teams, departments and organizations as they work with others to build commitment to goals and implement changes. A key feature of this intimate and interactive course is the opportunity to share tips with peers and learn from experienced women cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons who have steered their own successful careers.
