The ACG Women in GI Committee is hosting a virtual program for both men and women geared towards senior GI fellows and junior faculty, addressing the specifics of both the private practice and academic job search. Pre-recorded lectures will be available approximately two weeks in advance and we encourage you to watch them prior to the live virtual program where you will have the opportunity to ask the speakers questions. The live virtual workshop on January 16, 2021, will include a debate between panelists from both private practice and academics, Breakout Sessions for private practice and academics where attendees can ask the panelists questions, and finally a Q&A session where attendees can ask questions of the faculty who recorded the lectures. Recordings of the live sessions are also available below.

If you have a question for one of the faculty, please click here contact information.
