Becoming a Resilient Scientist

Workshop/Seminar: Personal Development

Sep 19, 2017

Speaker(s): Sharon Milgram, PhD, Director, OITE
This event is recommended for: Postbacs; Graduate Students; Postdocs/Fellows; NIH Staff Scientist/Staff Clinician.

Navigating new jobs, the career exploration process, and research can seem overwhelming and lead us to doubt ourselves just when we need confidence the most. In this interactive workshop, we will discuss attitudes and behaviors that can get in our way and explore strategies for building resilience and dealing with self-doubt and developing our confidence. The workshop will highlight the emotional intelligence competencies needed for success in research and healthcare careers and will provide insights into approaches for developing these competencies as part of your NIH experience.
