Early Career Development Consortium 2023 Report
The Early Career Development Consortium (ECDC) was quite successful this year with over 40 participants and 9 mentors. We met in small groups and discussed a wide range of questions facing Assistant Professors including developing a professional identity, balancing a career with life, identifying ‘personal success metrics,’ developing co-author relationships, and building a research pipeline. In addition, we discussed different ‘modes of operation’ in this career, diving into the details for how to actually get things done: managing our daily and weekly writing schedules, building an effective teaching portfolio, and learning how to say “no” effectively in various situations. We concluded the consortium with a social that included other ENT division consortia. Thanks to all who helped plan this session and for the participants who came ready to engage, learn, and share their insights.
