Not only has COVID-19 affected our personal lives, but it has also presented challenges for our professional lives. Many early career professionals are facing difficulties at work and experiencing anxiety about the future. This is the first of a two-session webinar and will serve as an informal peer support opportunity for early career psycho-oncology clinicians and researchers, where we can share our concerns and offer support to one another. The second session will involve presentations from senior clinicians and researchers in the field offering guidance on how to navigate our work and careers in light of the COVID-19 epidemic and its impacts. This will be advertised in the near future.
