Career and Professional Development
The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) offers career development workshops for women. The Early Career Women Faculty Professional Development Course, primarily for assistant professors, usually occurs in July. The Mid-Career Women Faculty Professional Development Course, for associate and full professors, usually takes place in December.
Information about each program is sent via the AHSC listserv a month or so before the application deadline. If you are interested in more information about these programs, we can connect you with a previous participant.
AAMC also designates a Women’s Liaison Officer (WLO) at each School of Medicine, who is charged with communicating opportunities for women and with assisting in the development of programs to facilitate the success of women faculty. The current WLO for the UA College of Medicine is Anne Wright.
ELAM's year-long program develops the professional and personal skills required to lead and manage in today's complex healthcare environment, with special attention to the unique challenges facing women in leadership positions. Over 700 senior women leaders have participated in the program since its inception in 1995.
