On July 9, the Task Force on Women’s Academic Careers in Medicine hosted a virtual meet and greet and panel discussion. The virtual event was held in place of our annual dinner that was canceled due to COVID-19.

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to major disruptions in the lives of academic faculty. Clinical duties have shifted and expanded, research has been upended and virtual teaching has become the norm. The pandemic has had significant and different impacts on women faculty, many of whom are also primarily responsible for managing childcare, eldercare and homeschool or are sharing these efforts with partners who are also essential workers. Recognizing that there is no going back to normal in the near future, and that the impact of COVID-19 on the careers of individual faculty will be profound and long lasting, the Women’s Task Force sponsored a panel discussion with women faculty from the DOM who are making substantial contributions to the COVID-19 response. We invite you to watch the recorded panel discussion, and feel free to post any comments below.
