Time Management: Own Your Time
In this educational webinar, Dr. Madhavan asked the following questions, "Do you feel overwhelmed with the unstructured nature and demands of academia? Creating course curricula and lectures, mentoring students, writing papers and grants, collecting and analyzing data, attending conferences, serving on committees, doing clinical work, and of course endless Zoom meetings -- where does that leave time for personal priorities?"

Dr. Madhavan discussed how effective time management is critical for a productive academic career and a healthier work-life balance. Dr. Madhavan also discussed best practices and strategies for successfully balancing academic goals with personal pursuits. This seminar is tailored for graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and junior faculty.
