UC Davis School of Medicine Women in Medicine and Health Sciences (WIMHS)

WIMHS Speaker Series and Networking Events for enhancing institutional climate for inclusion.

Speaker Session

WIMHS Speaker Series: Each year we host several guest speakers that are inspiring women leaders from across the country.  They provide inspiring talks and meet with individuals and groups of women faculty to discuss a variety of engaging topics.

Faculty Welcome Reception: Each year we host a reception to welcome our new women faculty. This event is attended by other members of WIMHS and UC Davis Health System leadership.  At this social networking event, each new woman faculty is introduced and is given an opportunity to meet other women faculty and health system leadership in a relaxed setting.
