Leading During Crisis

The first webinar in the 2021-2022 STS Leadership Series will be held on Thursday, April 8, at 7:00 p.m. ET. Add this event to your calendar.

The 60-minute webinar will be moderated by Mara B. Antonoff, MD, and Ram Kumar Subramanyan, MD, PhD. 

During this webinar, experienced physician leaders will provide insight, helpful tips, and lessons learned on how to navigate various unstable and surprising situations that leaders undoubtedly will encounter at some point in their careers. These can include financial crises, infrastructure changes, sexual harassment, natural disasters, security threats, regulatory failures, and the COVID pandemic.

Following an introduction of various leadership styles and a keynote address, a panel of distinguished cardiothoracic surgeon leaders from across the United States will answer questions about the professional difficulties they have faced and explain how they’ve successfully managed them. Webinar participants will be able to ask questions using the platform “chat” feature.

This webinar is complimentary and for STS members only.
