Late Career Transitions:  Navigation for Smoother Sailing

Faculty members face a number of career transitions over the course of their career. Navigating transitions for late career health professions educators can be the most challenging for some. In this workshop, Ivan Silver will explore the evidence, and experience of late career transitions, and provide suggestions on how to make these transitions smoother.

At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to

  1. reflect on their career and consider the options available to navigate change as they enter the last 1/3 of their career,
  2. describe recent literature on mid and late-stage career and retirement issues for physicians, and
  3. be inspired to advocate for system changes in their various practice contexts including having regular opportunities to have these types of planning conversations throughout one’s career.
