Women in Medicine and Science (WIMS) is a vibrant organization led by female faculty, trainees and students across the UK College of Medicine (COM). Its missions are grounded in networking and mentorship and supported by relevant, focused program planning. A primary goal is facilitating opportunities for career advancement. The major annual event in November features a nationally-renown Visiting Professor who delivers lectures and hosts workshops throughout the day.
All COM female faculty, medical students, PhD students, post-doctoral trainees, residents and fellows are members of WIMS!
The WIMS Executive Committee has representation from each Department and targeted constituencies (faculty, medical/graduate students, fellows/residents). Its ten Subcommittees and Task Forces have Members-at-Large from across the COM; men are most welcome to participate. WIMS has an established cross-campus relationship with the Women’s Executive Leadership Development (WELD) Program.
