Dr. Simmons highlighted the external programs of the AAMC Early and Mid-Career Seminars and the Executive Leadership in Academic Medicine (ELAM) program that serve to accelerate the careers of our growing women faculty at WCM. We had the pleasure of hearing eight esteemed WCM women faculty, who have attended these programs, share their experience. These speakers included Drs. Lisa Rong, Meredith Pittman, Anjali Rajadhyaksha, Jennifer Downs, Susan Pannullo, Barbara Hempstead, and Yoon Kang. Dr. Phil Stieg and Dr. Anthony Hollenberg were also present to demonstrate their support for our women faculty.
More than 40 aspiring women faculty came together to support, learn and share valuable insight on which program would benefit and assist their career advancement within academic medicine.
