What is Mom-Dad-Docs? The mission of this group is to provide a supportive community for postdoc, clinical fellow and graduate student parents at the NIH. This group will discuss and address issues and challenges of juggling parenthood and a scientific career at the same time. Monthly meetings will alternate between in-person discussions and webinars to provide postdoc/clinical fellow/graduate student parents a chance to meet while learning more about topics such as time management, career, and general parenting questions. Guest speakers will present topics, insights and resources. The Mom-Dad-Docs group welcomes all male and female post-docs, clinical fellows, trainees, graduate students and mentors with children (or thinking about having children).
