APDIM All About Me

Over the past two years, we all have been impacted personally and professionally by the COVID pandemic. In many cases, scholarly projects and other aspirational career plans were disrupted. Now, as we are adjusting to a “new normal,” both personally and professionally, is an ideal time to revisit aspects of our own professional development.

The interactive precourse is designed to help faculty make themselves the priority and provide the strategies, tools, and tips for "re-entry" back to their career paths. The course will start with a session on how to assess where you currently are and how to create your goals. Then faculty participants will choose from three simultaneous tracks based on their goals, including 1. Cultivating Leadership 2. Career Advancement 3. Enhancing Resilience.  Experienced speakers and content experts will lead interactive workshops, small group discussions, and didactic sessions. Participants will have time to network, reflect on the information presented, ask questions, and share ideas throughout the precourse.
