Group on Women in Medicine and Science (GWIMS)
In August 2009, the AAMC's Board of Directors approved the creation of the Group on Women in Medicine and Science (GWIMS). This action established the longstanding Women in Medicine program as a formal AAMC professional development group, congruent with other AAMC groups.
The mission of the GWIMS is to advance the full and successful participation and inclusion of women in all roles within academic medicine, and to provide a venue for women to participate in advancing the AAMC mission to improve the nation’s health. The GWIMS aims to serve as a national forum to advance women's success in medicine and science by addressing:
- gender equity
- recruitment and retention
- awards and recognition
- career advancement
This issue of GWIMSWatch includes articles on how to proactively plan for promotion by turning educational and clinical work into scholarship, overcoming writers' block, an interview with Dr. Toni Ganzel, Dean of the University of Louisville School of Medicine, the power of introverts, and more.
The GWIMS Research and Product Development Subcommittee is excited to announce the launch of the two new chapters of the GWIMS Toolkit:
1. Workshop Preparation and Presentation
2. How to Start and Maintain a Robust WIMS Organization
The GWIMS Toolkit is a series of presentations designed to provide practical guidance on a variety of topics relevant to women faculty in academic medicine. Each presentation provides an overview of the topic, relevant best practices, tips on implementation, and useful references for more information. We encourage you to share these resources with interested colleagues at your organization.
