1/ THREAD: Becoming a Published Author in a Pandemic
I published my first academic paper in the American Chemical Society Chemical Neuroscience (what?!) called “Heralding Healthcare Professionals: Recognition of Neurological Deficits in COVID-19” with the incredible @AMannanBaig!

3/ I always imagined that my first publication would be in maternal or women's health as they are my main clinical passions. My new position @MountAuburnHosp was supposed to start in March but then the #pandemic happened and everything changed @plrosen

@AcadMedJournal @EricLehrer @DrEmmaHolliday @PennStHershey @penn_state Are metrics for promotion and tenure at academic institutions easy to understand?
@AcadMedJournal @EricLehrer @DrEmmaHolliday @PennStHershey @penn_state Most would say the requirements are nebulous.

e.g., here are requirements from top tier institution, for non-tenure track and tenure-track faculty.

Historically, some said:
Asst prof = regional reputation
Assoc prof = national
Full prof = international ImageImage

And- I've had a really tough few months.
The burnout is real. 1/
I had a hard pregnancy.
Then the baby didn't sleep.
I kept thinking, if I can just sleep, everything will be fixed.
Sleep is better. But everything isn't fixed.
Apparently an early/mid-career crisis is very developmentally normal at this point. (Reassuring.)
It started to feel like all the decisions I thought were purposeful, were passive.
What of all of this did I actually mean to choose to do and be?
