ELAM Program for Women

The Hedwig van Ameringen Executive Leadership in Academic Medicine® (ELAM®) Program for Women is the nation's only in-depth program focused on preparing senior women faculty at schools of medicine, dentistry and public health to move into positions of institutional leadership where they can effect positive change.

ELAM's year-long program develops the professional and personal skills required to lead and manage successfully in today's complex healthcare environment, with special attention to the unique challenges facing women in leadership positions.

Fellows attend three weeklong sessions during the year—one in the fall, one in the spring, and one coinciding with the AAMC annual meeting in November. Between sessions, Fellows pursue independent assignments and develop an institutional action project at their home institution. Deans join their ELAM Fellows for the final 1 1/2 days of the spring session when they explore with a guest expert an issue on methodology pertinent to AHC leadership.
