Welcome from the Founding Chair

Thank you for your interest in learning more about Women in Medicine and Science (WIMS) at the University of Kentucky College of Medicine (UKCOM).  Established in 2015, WIMS is a vibrant organization that provides women in the COM with the essential elements for a successful career.  Through its relevant programming and specialized resources, WIMS provides mentorship, networking, and professional development opportunities to all of its constituencies --- medical students and graduate students, post-graduate clinical trainees and post-doctoral scholars, and physician and scientist faculty --- across the vast array of clinical practice specialties and basic science disciplines at UKCOM. 

Hope to meet you at our next live event.  Please share your ideas or contact us if you need specific information.
