Early Career Genetic Professionals Workshop - Building Leadership/Management Skills

Wednesday, March 18
Genetics trainees must complete fellowship programs to acquire the specialized knowledge and sufficient hands-on experience to perform as accredited professionals. While the fellowships are rigorous in teaching genetics, other professional skill sets crucial for a successful career may receive less emphasis. This 90-minute session is aimed to provide trainees and early career faculty members with information and resources relevant to 1) business aspects of running a laboratory or clinical practice, and 2) personnel management. Three experienced leaders in genetics will provide insights from their early career development and share critical tips and resources.
