Professional Development Certificate Program

Women in Medicine and Science

Are you looking for an opportunity to build competencies in leadership, administration, and teaching to better contribute to your team or advance your career? The College of Medicine’s Women in Medicine and Science (WIMS) group is excited to announce a new opportunity for faculty members and trainees to earn a Professional Development Certificate.

The Professional Development Certificate is designed for all College of Medicine junior and mid-level faculty and trainees including clinical residents and fellows, medical students, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows.

This unique two-year program will consist of educational and professional development workshops, many of which will focus on leadership skills, strategic thinking, and service on a WIMS subcommittee. The duration of each workshop will be one to two hours. 

Participants are required to:  

· Participate in six WIMS programs (an average of three each year)
· Attend a total of four sessions over the two years during the annual WIMS Day (held each fall semester)
· Hold active membership on one of the WIMS subcommittees, which provides excellent networking opportunities 

Upon completing the program, participants will receive a special WIMS Leadership Certificate, indicating that they have demonstrated the motivation to develop their professional career and acquired hands-on training in leadership areas essential for growth in their field.

Registration is currently full and will open again in after WIMS Day in the fall of 2021.  Next, you can visit our events listings and claim credit for past activities.  Simply click on the link to the event you have attended and use the registration link on that page to claim credit for attendance.
