Balancing clinical work with academia

Hi everyone, my name’s Jess and I’m writing today’s blog balancing clinical work with academia. This is an important issue for many SIOP young investigators, as many of us have clinical backgrounds and have then developed an academic interest which we try to balance alongside our work with patients. These challenges often vary based on the demands of your clinical role and on whether your research is lab-based or more clinical.

She is an avid volunteer and has volunteered for several years for many volunteer organizations in the field. Below is a summary of our conversation

Balancing Family Life and Research

Hi everybody! My name is Liliana, I am a pediatric oncologist and a Young Investigator. I would like to start a discussion about what I consider is one of the most important challenges in our life as researchers, clinicians and scientists: How to “balance” a family life and a demanding professional life.
