The forum will also consist of small group sessions and activities; focused didactic presentations from leaders in emergency medicine administration, education and research; and a Q&A panel of current and former department chairs. Topics to be covered include academic leadership, conflict management, making the most of career opportunities, achieving work-life balance, and time management. The session will conclude with a “Personal Pathways in Academia Panel” offering pearls and personal anecdotes with important take-home messages for aspiring academicians.
