Chair(s):
Danny A. Benau, PhD
Director, Biomedical Writing Programs
University of the Sciences in Philadelphia, United States

Description:
So you’ve launched your career and have a few years' experience. In the old days, this meant that you would find your final employer and settle in for your inhouse advancement and 25-year gold watch. This is not true today. Our degrees give us basic credentials, our experience is portable to many different fields in the industry, and our career tracks are flexible. This forum will give an overview of updating your education throughout your career and how one can leverage education and experience to change career tracks.


Learning Objective(s):
Identify continuing education opportunities to help maintain career flexibility and meet continuing license requirements; Recognize "pigeon-holing" and prevent getting into a career rut; Use education and experience to change career direction in minor and major ways, if desired, to increase career satisfaction and prevent career burnout.
