Call for Applications: 2023 Early Women Faculty Leadership Development Seminar

The Department of Medicine and Program for Women in Internal Medicine (PWIM) is pleased to sponsor one faculty member to attend the AAMC Early-Career Women Seminar July 18-21, 2023, Hyatt Regency Boston; Boston, Massachusetts. This seminar is returning to a traditional in-person learning event in July.

This popular and highly interactive seminar provides women at the assistant professor level with foundational leadership knowledge and skills that will enable them to achieve their career goals and thrive as successful leaders in academic medicine and science.

The seminar will present a foundation for modeling leadership behavior, and participants will learn critical skills and strategies to assist them as they prepare for their next advancement and promotion opportunity. Due to the content focus, applicants must be actively looking to advance to the next stage of their career.

Seminar activities will focus on expanding their network of colleagues through the facilitation of peer discussions, large- and small-group sessions, and activities to gain additional insights from faculty and peers alike. There is an emphasis on establishing personal leadership skills and practices to serve as a foundation for success as women prepare to advance to higher faculty ranks and leadership positions.

Who Should Attend?

The Early Career Seminar for Women Faculty is designed for women physicians and scientists with an appointment at an AAMC member school of medicine, with a minimum of two years of experience (from the date of the seminar) as an Assistant Professor. Instructors will be considered based on experience. We recognize every faculty member’s career progresses at a different pace so we say, generally, this seminar is designed for women faculty who have held an academic appointment at a school of medicine for 8 years or less. Due to high demand, and limited capacity, we are unable to accept anyone outside of this target audience.

Application fees for this seminar will be announced in February and sponsored by PWIM. The application process will open in mid-February, remain open for a maximum of four weeks, and will close once applications exceed program capacity.

If you are interested in being considered for DOM sponsorship, please fill out the form by 02/03/2023.  Members of the office of the Vice-Chair for Faculty Development and Diversity (Drs. Svetkey, and Zipkin) will select one faculty member to nominate to attend and will notify the applicant by email.
