Are you currently a trainee or early career professional who is taking steps to transition to the next level in your career? Have you been searching for advice on how to navigate and negotiate a career in endocrine science or medicine? Are you interested in getting first-hand feedback on your grant-writing skills or seeking tips on publishing your science? Are you interested in learning how to network effectively and identify potential mentors? And even how to balance it all with your personal life?
If your answer is yes to any of these questions, ENDO 2019 has programming specifically designed to give you in-depth instruction on how to build a successful career in endocrinology that you won’t want to miss.
Career Development Workshops — Wisdom for Every Stage
Four days of workshops — led by global experts in basic and clinical endocrinology — examine an array of topics tailored to help you build a long-lasting career. Distinguished speakers will present sessions that include a close look at the multitude of career options available for clinicians and scientists and how to navigate training, certification, and fellowships.
Learn the best practices for negotiating conflict and resolution, see how successful endocrinologists set up and manage labs and practices, and find the keys to writing research grant applications that hit the mark.
Early Career Forum — Get Off to a Strong Start!
Join us before ENDO 2019 officially begins for a day full of Early Career Forum symposia, breakout sessions, and plenaries. Graduate and medical students, postdoctoral fellows, and clinical fellows alike will benefit from practical lessons and sessions.
The Forum starts with a plenary that will prepare you with tips and tools on How to Navigate ENDO 2019. Then select symposia and breakout sessions that focus on one of two areas of interest: basic science and clinical research or clinician practice and education.
Breakout sessions — which run concurrently and are repeated — will highlight the transition from PhD to post-doc, teaching and publishing skills, careers in industry, academia, government, and at a private practice, and more.
Lunch provides the ideal setting to get to know the faculty and seasoned professionals leading the sessions. The day concludes with a conversation on how to maximize your ENDO 2019 experience in the days ahead.
Mentoring and Poster Reception – Find Your Future
Network with endocrine professionals, Society mentors, trainees and junior faculty while viewing posters presented by early career scientists of underrepresented minority groups. The Mentoring and Poster Reception will be held on Sunday, March 24, 7:00 – 9:30 p.m.
Bioinformatics Workshop: Pathways and Interactions – Explore the Possibilities
Attend the inaugural half-day workshop developed by the Trainee and Career Development Core Committee and designed to provide scientists training on how to explore and use protein interaction and pathway bioinformatics resources. Attendees will get an in-depth look into the data repositories, resources, and tools available and how to both find information on a single molecule and how to build high-quality networks to enable network analysis. The Bioinformatics Workshop will be held on Tuesday, March 26, 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Please join us at ENDO 2019! We look forward to seeing you there!
