Inaugural Women in Medicine and Science Symposium featured in Quarterly magazine


Did you miss the inaugural Women in Medicine and Science Symposium? Held last fall/winter and now featured in the latest issue of Quarterly magazine, the event was the first of its kind at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health to explore topics in leadership and professional development for women across a wide array of disciplines in medicine and science.

Dr. Christine Seibert, associate dean for medical student education and services at SMPH, said the event "absolutely met its goals for women and their sponsors to be inspired, engage in honest discourse about the challenges for women in medicine, and join together to promote positive change.”

The Symposium was set in motion and led by Dr. Mary Westergaard, who also moderated the one-hour panel discussion with women leaders at SMPH. DEM Chair Dr. Azita Hamedani served as a panelist focusing on mentorship and sponsorship in academic medicine.
