    This highly engaging three-day seminar is designed to provide mid-career women faculty with the knowledge and skills necessary to support their continued progress along the path to leadership in academic medicine and science. The seminar covers organizational leadership topics and career advancing strategies that are essential for effective leaders throughout various mission-critical activities.

    Participants will benefit from a combination of general sessions and self-selected, small group breakout sessions, providing participants the ability to tailor the seminar to their specific learning needs and interests. The personalized curriculum and interactivity of this seminar will enable attendees to enhance their leadership capabilities and employ strategic thinking about their career progression.

    Who Should Attend?

    The Mid-Career Seminar 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 Associate Professor. Beginning with their first medical school faculty appointment, applicants typically have a minimum of eight years’ experience. Mid-career applicants should have demonstrated leadership ability that may include formal administrative, organizational (local or national), or other types of informal leadership roles. They must actively be seeking leadership opportunities to advance to the next stage of their career, including full professorship or other advanced leadership positions, as the curriculum focuses on the skills necessary for career advancement within academic medicine and science.

    Application & Fees

    The application process for the December 2024 program will open in early August 2024 and will be open for 3 weeks. Learn more about important changes to the application process.

    The application fee for the 2023 seminar was $2350 and covered the cost of the seminar, course materials, some meals, and networking activities. The application fee does not include the optional CME fee, travel expenses, or hotel accommodations. The fee is subject to a slight increase and will be announced in Summer 2024.

    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.
