NEJM CareerCenter Conversations: A Leave of Absence

This is part 6 of a 6 part series featuring women physicians.

Is it possible to take a hiatus to raise children and then re-enter practice? How do we encourage women to re-enter active practice after leaving? How can physicians plan their departure and re-entry and what hurdles to they have to overcome to get back into practice?

The NEJM CareerCenter is your trusted source for physician career resources and the latest physician job openings in the United States.

In a continuing effort to provide valuable resources, we’ve curated physicians with special career expertise and experience for the NEJM CareerCenter Conversations series. In conjunction with Medstro, we are excited to start a dialogue on career issues that impact the modern day physician.

For this special series spotlighting women physicians, the American Medical Women’s Association (AMWA) joins us to lead the discussion on career issues that women in medicine face today.

Regardless of where you are in your career, we hope these topics spark productive and educational discussions.
