WASHINGTON (CNN) – Washington U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton left home to return to work Monday morning for the first time since she was sidelined by illness, a concussion and a blood clot, according to a schedule released by the State Department.

According to the department’s weekly schedule, Clinton is slated to attend a meeting with assistant secretaries of state at 9:15 a.m. ET Monday. On Tuesday she’ll meet with outgoing Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and National Security Adviser Tom Donilon at the White House before attending meetings with ambassadors at the State Department.

On Friday Clinton will participate in events surrounding Afghan President Hamid Karzai’s visit to Washington.
