CHICAGO – Can women physicians succeed professionally while also meeting their personal goals?
Absolutely, says Dr. Farzanna Haffizulla, immediate past president of the American Medical Women’s Association and founder of a concierge practice in Davie, Fla.
While women physicians face challenges during every stage of their training and career, they should never give up personal goals for professional ambitions, or vice versa, Dr. Haffizulla said at the annual meeting of the American Medical Women’s Association.
Women doctors can meet dual objectives through strong organization, dedicated support systems, and steady determination, said Dr. Haffizulla, a nationally recognized speaker on work/life balance who has authored two books on the subject and runs the work/life balance website www.BusyMomMD.com.
