    The AAMC believes that gender equity is key to achieving excellence in academic medicine. As women continue to be underrepresented in key leadership positions within the physician and scientific research workforce, the early and mid-career women faculty seminars strive to provide participants with critical knowledge, skills, and strategies to enhance their leadership skillset and increase their confidence in seeking advancement to the next stage of their career.

    Previous attendees have provided feedback regarding the positive impact of full participation in all seminar programming, including plenary and breakout sessions, peer collaboration activities, and evening networking events. These seminars are designed to immerse and engage you in an intensive learning experience through interactive table discussions, focused learning and application, and networking opportunities. Please consider applying to a seminar at a time that best allows you to be fully present in the classroom and engage in all activities to maximize the overall impact of the experience for yourself and the other participants.

    • Apply critical knowledge from the seminar and create an actionable plan to achieve career goals.
