Launch Your Career® (LYCS) Series

CareerPhysician is the national leader for academic child health executive search and leadership development. We believe every physician is a leader with the ability to positively or negatively impact the teams with which they serve. It starts with residents and fellows and continues along the continuum to emeritus status and retirement.

The Launch Your Career Series was built specifically for residents and fellows to promote and facilitate a proactive approach to the transition from training into academic or private practice. With more than 600 sessions successfully completed on topics such as Conducting an Effective Practice Search, Negotiating Your First Employment Agreement, Healthcare Finance 101 and many others, the program has served for more than 20 years as a proven career resource for young physicians and their training programs.

For Pediatric Residents and Fellows, we have exclusively partnered with the Child Health Advisory Council (CHAC) to provide their decades of career wisdom and experience to young pediatricians. Some of the greatest leadership minds of this generation are now available and excited to assist the next generation with their career pursuits.
