Evidence shows, that women faculty may be underutilized as leaders nationally within academic medicine. We are committed to advancing women in medicine and science at IUSM, and are pleased to provide this workshop to support women faculty members in their career development.
Held each fall, the IUSM Women in Medicine and Science (WIMS) conference provides a collegial and professional environment for faculty, residents and fellows, students, and staff to discuss career advancement, particularly issues of interest to women.
Our overall goal is for every faculty member to be a success story.
By the end of the conference, we hope participants will have:
