2018 Women in Medicine Symposium


In an effort to be environmentally friendly and contain costs of this symposium, approved handouts will be sent to registered attendees prior to the symposium or made available on the mobile web app.

Updated files may be made available during or shortly after the symposium.

Attendees are encouraged to download their files to their laptop/flash drive prior to attending the conference. Internet access may not be available in the meeting space unless you already have wireless access via aircard or other wireless capability.

Attendees are welcome to print out the online material and bring hard copies to the conference, as well.

* At the discretion of the presenter or symposium planning committee, not all handouts are approved for posting or distribution. Some slides may be removed from any presentation for proprietary and or confidential information. Revised handouts may be posted after the symposium.

We have gathered some resources and articles on the topics to be discussed. Please take the time to look through them prior to the conference. 

We also have attached the "Women in Medicine Questions for our Panelists" from 2016, that has valuable insights from SCPMG women leaders at various stages of their career. They answer questions such as “How did you get to where you are in your career?”,  “Are there any obstacles you encountered?”, “What motivates you and how do you stay motivated?”, and “How do you deal with stress?”.  Please make sure to take a look at this special resource.
