The Courage to Lead-Finding Truth in Our Laboratories

From the 2022 Emerging Laboratory Managers Collaborative Conference (recorded 1/14/2022)
Presented by Emily Volk, MD, FCAP

Being a pathologist and a leader in health care often requires a firm understanding that the foundation of all medicine is based on the truth in the laboratory. With humor, triumph and humility, Emily E. Volk, MD, FCAP, through personal stories vividly illustrates her coming of age as a new-in-practice woman physician during less politically correct times, and the lessons learned throughout her own career journey. These experiences, while additionally dealing with the challenges of being a working parent, shaped her strategies for effective leadership in the laboratory.

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss challenges encountered when pursuing leadership positions
  • Describe strategies for leading effectively
