Dr. Prasad Accepted into National Leadership Program

 

Arti Prasad, M.D., chief of the Integrative Medicine section within the Division of Division of General Medicine at the UNM School of Medicine, has been accepted into the prestigious Hedwig van Ameringen Executive Leadership in Academic Medicine (ELAM) program for the 2004-2005 class.  

  "We are extremely pleased that Dr. Prasad was selected in a year when there were double the numbers of applicants for each available space," said Paul Roth, M.D., dean of the School of Medicine in announcing the appointment. 

 Established in 1995, ELAM offers an intensive program of executive training, coaching, networking and mentoring opportunities, aimed at expanding the number of qualified women candidates for leadership in academic medicine and dentistry.

"The ELAM fellowship is designed to develop the management and leadership skills of women in academic medicine. This is important because, although the percentage of medical students who are women has increased to right around 50%, the ranks of leadership in academic medicine (chairs, deans) are still disproportionately male," said Carolyn Voss, M.D., professor of Internal Medicine, and a graduate of the program.   

"The ELAM fellowship is a nationally competitive program, and successful candidates must have the recommendation of the Dean to be considered. Dr. Roth's support of Dr. Prasad and myself - in obtaining the fellowship demonstrates his commitment to diversity among the leaders of the School of Medicine," said Voss.
