The mission of UMSOM WIMS is to recruit, retain and promote women in academic medicine and science. Although women are well-represented in many ranks at the University Of Maryland School Of Medicine, and comprise more than half of each medical student class, women faculty nationally report facing unique challenges, particularly with regard to balancing academic goals and the demands of family life.
The Faculty Affairs & Professional Development hosts networking lunches periodically for women, and encourages new women faculty to take advantage of the teaching skills and research skills seminars offered, and to identify and work with an effective mentor. The Office will work with interested faculty to develop workshops, provide mentorship and serve as a clearinghouse for Women in Medicine information.
