Our mission is to provide skill sets for the professional development of women trainees in the Department of Medicine.

The Forum for Women in Medicine was created in 2014 to support the professional and personal development of the women trainees in the Department of Medicine. FWIM will host workshops, lectures, and networking events throughout the academic year to provide career development guidance, facilitate mentoring opportunities and foster a sense of camaraderie within the women in the training program. I hope that through these informative events, we will cultivate an academic culture that empowers women trainees now and in the years to come.

Through this initiative, we aim to provide our women trainees:

  • Leadership Development Skills
  • Work-Life Balance Strategies
  • Career Planning Guidance
  • Opportunities for Mentor Support and Sponsorship
  • Networking Opportunities

Rakhee K. Bhayani, MD
