Women bring a unique and much needed perspective to the world of academic health care. However, while the proportion of women in academic leadership positions has increased over the last 10 years, they continue to be severely underrepresented overall at the upper levels of administration.

And ELAM is making a difference!

When you give your financial support to the ELAM program, you play a vital role in our educational programs, research, publications, and support of alumnae and their institutions in our collective efforts to advance women in academia.
