Beth Malow, M.D., M.S., professor of Neurology and Pediatrics, and Consuelo Wilkins, M.D., associate professor of Medicine and director of the Meharry-Vanderbilt Alliance, have been selected into the 2014-2015 class of Fellows for the Hedwig van Ameringen Leadership in Medicine (ELAM) Program at Drexel University College of Medicine.

The national leadership program announced recently that it selected 54 women to embark in the yearlong program, which is dedicated to preparing women for senior leadership roles in academic health science institutions.

The one-year, part-time program combines three weeklong, in-residence sessions with distance learning, ending in April 2015.

“The curriculum addresses four major competencies of academic leadership,” said Diane Magrane, M.D., director of Drexel’s International Center for Executive Leadership in Academics, which supports the program.

“Fellows enter the program with a great capacity for leading organizational change – ELAM gives them the tools, road map, and confidence needed to make an impact on their institutions and beyond.”

Malow is also the Burry Professor of Cognitive Childhood Development and director of the Vanderbilt Sleep Disorders Division.
