Studies show that more women than men work in healthcare and academic medicine, yet men hold the majority of senior leadership roles. “I can tell you from firsthand experience that this is a very real problem,” says Margaret Gyetko, M.D., Senior Associate Dean at the University of Michigan Medical School. “As a physician, and as a dean, I’ve been the only woman in the meeting or at my level for most of my career. I wish I had an opportunity early on to look up and see other women leading the way, to ask questions and learn from them.”
And that’s why we’ve partnered with the University of Michigan Medical School, a world-renowned leader in medical education, to launch our new Leadership Summit for Women: Leading the Future of Healthcare and Academic Medicine. This innovative, one-day summit is specifically designed to provide the essential skills, networking, and dialogue that are critical to helping women advance into senior positions in healthcare and academic medicine. Over 400 women are expected to attend.
“This summit gives women the chance to meet and learn from women leading the way,” adds Dr. Gyetko. “It will play a pivotal role in changing the look of leadership in healthcare and academic medicine now and into the future.”
The event takes place on March 30, 2015, in Ann Arbor, Michigan. It’s perfect for female faculty, physicians, nurse scientists, nurses, and administrators in mid-management or higher roles, and limited space is still available.
