Awards and Recognition Overview

Established in 2002 by our founding President Amy O'Brien-Ladner, MD, the WIMS organization continues to seek ways to further the professional goals of women on the University of Kansas Medical Center campus. The goal of the WIMS Recognition Committee is to establish mechanisms to recognize our female faculty and trainees as they achieve academic career success and satisfaction. In addition to the awards sponsored by WIMS in the list below, the committee strives to recognize our women faculty by submitting nominations for others listed on the Calendar.of Awards.
