The Faculty Leadership Academy (FLA) is a joint effort of the University of Kansas School of Medicine and the University of Kansas Hospital. Its purpose is to help improve the management and leadership skills of physician and basic science faculty members. Attendees are nominated by their respective department chairs. The course of study for each attendee spans two academic years, with four "core" courses per year, each of which is a half-day in length.
The University of Kansas Women in Medicine & Science (WIMS) Organization is in alliance with GWIMS in medical schools across the country through its AAMC Group on Women in Medicine and Science (GWIMS) affiliation. GWIMS supports the growth and successful careers for physicians and basic scientists.
KU WIMS offers two scholarships to support our SOM women faculty members who wish to attend the Early Career or Mid-Career Seminar.
