Programming for Women Faculty
Women Advancing in Academic Medicine (WAAM)
The goal of WAAM is to build readiness for the promotion of women Assistant Professors in clinical departments (MDs) by engaging in a series of career development exercises, facilitated by senior women faculty leaders. The curriculum is based on the book, Ask For It: How Women Can Use the Power of Negotiation to Get What They Really Want by Linda Babcock and Sara Laschever.
The program consists of a series of four required meetings.
