FLEXcast is the College of Medicine - Tucson podcast dedicated to sharing ideas and practices for career development and wellbeing for faculty. Faculty discuss their experiences, challenges, and successes in their professional growth and bring attention to resources in the literature, in our own instution, and in the community.

Thanks for checking out our first FLEXcast! In our first episode, we discuss creating your own personal mission and vision. We’re sharing our thoughts and perspectives on this process after working through it on our own and reflecting on our careers thus far.

Taking some time to define your core values, vision and mission may help guide you in your career trajectory and prioritize your energy and efforts.
