Join us on Wednesday, November 20th, 2019 at 5:30 PM EST as we discuss perspectives, pitfalls, and strategies for combating impostor syndrome. Tiffany Brown, PhD and Oana Tomescu, MD, PhD will be speaking as experts on the topic of psychology/wellness in the medical and biomedical research settings as it relates to impostor syndrome. These experts, despite different training backgrounds, support the psychological wellness of MD and PhD students at the University of Pennsylvania through individual counseling, curriculum, and programming. Dr. Brown and Dr. Tomescu will define impostor syndrome, discuss the interaction between multi-faceted underrepresented identities and impostor syndrome, explain how this phenomenon can play out differently during MD/DO and PhD training, and highlight strategies trainees can use to combat impostor syndrome now and later in their careers. The expert panelists will be available to answer questions for the majority of the interactive session. Questions can be sent prior to or during the program to, or submitted via chat or Twitter during the interactive webinar. The majority of the content for this session will be driven by the priorities of the audience, so we encourage you to submit your questions! The session will be recorded and available later for those unable to make this date and time.
