Women in Science and Health

The Women In Science & Health Committee was established with the following charge:

   

  • To enhance the advancement of women through professional development programs.
  • Establishing an effective network of women faculty.
  • Assesing the current status of women faculty in terms of academic rank, years of service and salary plus incentives.
  • Developing and implementing a faculty mentoring program for women.

 

As a result of the work of this group both women and male faculty are currently involved in the mentoring program. In addition, a number of women faculty have been able to attend the prestigious Executive Leadership in Academic Medicine (ELAM) with others from all across the county.
