The ELAM program is a one-year fellowship of leadership training aimed at expanding the pool of qualified women candidates for leadership in academic medicine and public health. It has been developed for women faculty at the associate or full professor level who have held the position for at least two years, and demonstrate the greatest potential for assuming executive leadership positions at academic health centers within the next five years. ELAM is not a clinical physician executive program, nor is it a medical education program. To learn more about this opportunity, visit ELAM’s website.
Opportunity for Sponsorship
Each year, the School of Medicine and Public Health (SMPH) will fully support a female faculty member to participate in the ELAM program. The nomination will be made by the Dean of SMPH. In order to be considered, an applicant must first be nominated by their Department Chair, Center Director or Associate Dean. Contact your Chair, Center Director or Associate Dean directly if you are interested in this opportunity. If you applied to be sponsored for the ELAM program last year, you are welcome to reapply. If you were nominated in the previous year by the Dean but were not accepted by ELAM, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to submitting an application. A committee of SMPH reviewers will evaluate the applications and an applicant will be notified of their selection with time to complete the ELAM application. The selected SMPH applicant must initiate their application in the ELAM portal, which will trigger an email to the Dean of SMPH who will complete the application process. SMPH support does not guarantee acceptance by ELAM.
