Women in Medicine & Science
The Women in Medicine and Science (WIMS) Program is sponsored by the Dean, School of Medicine, and Faculty Administration. The goal of the program is to bring women faculty, residents, and students together for networking, and to provide programs to assist in their professional and personal development.
The mission of the Women in Medicine & Science Program at the University of Utah Health Sciences Center is to foster the academic progress of women faculty, housestaff, graduate students, and medical students through education, advocacy, mentoring, and networking. The program provides opportunities for women to acquire the skills and strategies necessary for their professional advancement. The program aims for women to be successful in attaining senior faculty ranks and leadership positions within the Health Sciences Center and monitors the status of women in medicine in order to ensure equality of participation and reward, and to identify and address barriers to advancement. The program promotes excellence in clinical care, education, and research in women's health. It recognizes the importance of diversity, humanism, varied career paths, personal wellness and a healthy, balanced life. Our activities are intended to benefit all, regardless of gender.
