EBS has a new Board!
The new board wishes best of luck to the outgoing board as they journey to the clinical part of their medical training. The new board members are excited to make 2013 a great one for EBS.
While building on the strong foundation established by previous Elizabeth Blackwell Society members, the current board aims to:
- Cultivate concrete, practical skills that Penn women can use to envision, define, and pursue a career of their design. Examples include establishing productive mentor-mentee relationship, networking, exploring specialties, being a successful leader, overcoming barriers, and balancing a personal life. Many of the talks held in past years will be repeated, but with more of an emphasis on offering specific, applicable advice and skill building.
- Foster an environment both at Penn and in the larger medical community that is supportive of women in medicine. This will require raising awareness of relevant issues as well as encouraging camaraderie and collegiality among all members of the community.
We look forward to an exciting and educational year!
The EBS Board
