The ELAM program is the only in-depth national program dedicated to preparing women faculty at schools of medicine, dentistry and public health to affect sustained positive change as institutional leaders.
The intensive one-year program supports ELAM fellows as they develop a broader vision of their role within their academic health centers, enhancing their leadership effectiveness, understanding of strategic finance, and ability to lead organizational change. Fellows also become part of an active resource network of many of the top women health care leaders in the nation.
