KU Women in Medicine and Science

The University of Kansas Women in Science and Medicine (WIMS) organization, located on the University of Kansas Medical Center campus in Kansas City, Kansas, is committed to serve all faculty and trainees from the School of Medicine, School of Nursing, and the School of Health Professions. Our mission is focused on advancing the careers of women in the fields of medicine and science, nursing nad health professions through development of mentoring, networking, and faculty retention. Our goals are to increase the number of women faculty new hires, increase the rate of women faculty promotions and increase our retention of women faculty members through greater job satisfaction.

To achieve our goals, we provide programs for professional career development, educational seminars, presentations on physical and mental health-related topics, and social events. Our infrastructure is comprised of officers, chairs and members from four committees, with member representatives from each of the three schools on campus and a team of support staff volunteers to help us accomplish our goals by handling tasks behind the scenes. View the Leadership Team Manual and Job Descriptions for elected officers and representatives and committee chairs here for additional information about WIMS infrastructure, committee responsibilities and committee chair job descriptions.

KUMC WIMS maintains an affiliation with the American Association of Medical College's (AAMC) GWIMS and the Society for Executive Leadership in Academic Medicine (ELAM).
