RISE 2023

February 18, 2023 - February 18, 2023

New York, NY

RISE was developed to provide women across medical specialties with an opportunity to grow professionally: gaining access to trainings, insights and opportunities for their future success.

At the full-day RISE conference, you can:

  • Connect with leaders across specialties to gain insight and exposure to what leading medical and non-medical organizations are doing in support of women.
  • Workshop with experts in areas such as clinical trial leadership, business acumen and leadership skills.
  • Gain from a cross-specialty experience to chart your strategic path forward for professional success.

Join Program Directors Roxana Mehran, MD and Azin Parhizgar, PhD as we engage physicians and leadership across industries and subspecialties to create positive change for women in medicine.
