5. Is there a special rate for medical students and residents?
Residents are welcome to attend the course, but there is no special rate for this event. The CWIM Conference in June 2021 does have a special learner rate - registration opening soon!
6. Do I need any special technical skills to attend this virtual course?
No! The course will be held on a user-friendly platform and no technical skills are required. We do recommend a high speed internet connection to ensure the live-stream components are clear.
7. What is the time commitment?
There will be 5 half-day sessions between Feb-May 2021, held on Saturdays (12-pm-4pm EST / 9am-1pm PST). There will also be an optional evening meeting with your small group cohort every two weeks to check-in. You can participate live as much or as little as you can manage, and catch up anytime.
8. What if I can't make every session?
Not a problem! All sessions will be recorded and available for viewing throughout the course and for 30 days afterwards. If you have specific questions for the speakers and won't be able to attend a session, you can even submit these in advance.
9. What is a cohort and how will mine be assigned?
Every attendee will be assigned a small cohort group to follow-through the course with. These groups will connect virtually every two weeks to check-in on the course topics, and be a source of support and connection throughout the course and afterwards. We will create groups based on a number of factors, including your preferences outlined on your registration form.
10. Will I get to connect with other women outside of my cohort?
Absolutely! Every session will be interactive, with group chat, Q &A and small group round tables that will be randomly assigned so you will get a chance to meet everyone attending the course. We will also host some optional networking evenings for a chance to make more personal connections.
11. What happens after the course?
We hope is that you will have made connections, set goals, and be well on your way to achieving them by the conclusion of the course. However, we recognize that making changes and pursuing passions can be challenging, especially on your own. Our goal is to create lasting connections and a network of support for each attendee to move forward. We will keep our platform open for group discussions and small group meetings for the month following the course, and host a check-in session for all attendees in fall 2021.
12. What is included in the course?
