This symposium, Supporting Trainees and Faculty thought Pregnancy, Post-Partum, Parening and Promotion, was origianlly delivered at the SGIM22 annual meeting in Orlando (April 2022).

Learning Objectives:

  • Define the extent of challenges experienced by physician parents with additional emphasis related to parenting during COVID
  • Explore the role of SGIM and physician leaders to support physicians with parenting and care-giving demands 
  • Prescribe solutions for work-life balance through scheduling flexibility, virtual visits, family medical leave and re-entry
  • Discuss how parenting responsibilities disproportionately affect women's careers, and how leaders and institutions can create equitable system-wide changes to address these issues
Pregnancy and parenting are highly demanding jobs which can be difficult to combine with an academic career in general internal medicine.  Physician-parents are at increased risk for stress and burn out; more so during the COVID pandemic.  Presenters will provide innovative strategies to create equitable work environments, retain parents in general internal medicine and ensure academic success.
