SPS educational program

Down a road and back again: Making a late-life transition into a meaningful retirement

Saturday, June 8

Noon–1:30 p.m.

Speaker: Michelle Pannor Silver, PhD, assistant professor, Department of Health Studies/Anthropology at the University of Toronto Scarborough Campus and at the Institute of Health Policy, Management, and Evaluation. She also holds cross appointments at the Institute for Life Course and Aging and in the Department of Medicine.  

Program description: Retirement planning is complicated for all but especially for physicians whose personal identity is often tied to their profession. The education and training required to become a physician often leaves little time to think about or develop outside interests.

This program will look at how investing time and resources into facilitating late career succession planning strategies can honor a physicians’ lifelong commitment to medicine. 

Learning objectives:

Upon completion of this session, you will be able to:

  • Review how retirement trends have shifted with increased longevity
  • Identify the challenges that physicians face in planning for late-career transitions
  • Develop strategies to facilitate the transition to retirement
  • Discuss the importance of early financial planning for security in retirement

If you have questions about the meeting, please contact Alice Reed at [email protected] or (312) 464-5523.
