Career Talk

Career Talk is an on-line resource initiated in 2002 by the ATS Women's Mentoring Program. It is designed to serve physicians and other professionals seeking to establish a career in pulmonary medicine. While many articles are written with an academic focus, most are applicable to professional advancement in any field. This site aims to define the values and expectations important for professional and personal success, alert the reader to potential pitfalls along the way as well as discuss strategies for navigating these problems. The columns feature links and bibliographies that will aid you in obtaining the information you need to proactively manage and negotiate your career. Many of the original articles were written between 2002-2005. This year, in addition to updating the archive, occasional new articles will continue to appear. Please send me your ideas and comments. The feedback I have received has been very valuable.
