Navigating parental leave as a leader in radiology: Commentary on challenges and strategies

Academic Article


  • Navigating parental leave can be challenging in all fields of medicine, but it can be especially challenging for leaders balancing clinical, research, and administrative duties. As women take on more leadership roles, we have the opportunity to better define the current challenges and identify potential strategies for navigating successful parental leave while balancing the demands of leadership. This manuscript provides a commentary on the challenges and strategies for navigating parental leave in leadership positions in radiology, an important topic for shaping how parental leave is both viewed and valued in the future. Specifically, we highlight challenges and strategies for administrative responsibilities, reporting personnel, emails, microaggressions, research, empowerment, and prioritization.
