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.

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. Mid-career applicants should have demonstrated leadership ability, either in formal administrative or other leadership roles. Applicants should have a minimum of eight years’ experience in academic medicine and science and actively seeking to progress to the next stage of their career, along the path to full professorship and/or other advanced leadership position .

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.

Program Objectives

At the completion of the seminar, participants will be able to:

  • Visualize potential paths to leadership and develop career plans to advance toward that vision.
  • Identify networks of mentors and colleagues in academic medicine and science.
  • Acquire tools and skills necessary for leading teams toward improved organizational and individual performance.
