Bronwyn E. Wilson, MD, professor of Internal Medicine and assistant dean for Academic Affairs at the SOM, has been accepted into the prestigious Executive Leadership in Academic Medicine for Women (ELAM) Program for 2011-2012. Wilson's project will be on developing a mentoring program for Clinician Educators.

T his is the 17th incoming class for ELAM®, which is the only national program dedicated to preparing senior women faculty for positions of leadership at academic health centers.

While the number of women graduating from health professional schools across the country continues to climb, the number of women holding positions of leadership in academic health centers lags severely behind. ELAM’s mission is to increase the number of women in senior academic leadership positions, where they can ultimately help change the culture of academic health organizations to become more accepting of different perspectives and responsive to societal needs and expectations. ELAM also aims to increase the diversity of women in these leadership positions.
