Each academic medical center celebrates its own successes and faces its own unique challenges with regard to the status and advancement of women in the health sciences. UC Davis Health’s Women in Medicine and Health Sciences (WIMHS) strategic plan aims to enrich the user’s understanding of the state of women faculty in our health system by providing the context of a national perspective from multiple data sources, referencing scholarly work from our own faculty experience, and identifying actionable strategic priorities resulting from a strategic planning process, with the goal of catalyzing change in our health system.
Data and recommendations presented in this plan are designed to equip those advocating for the advancement of women in medicine and health sciences with a baseline from which to examine institutional practice, advocate for the five (5) identified strategic priority areas, and support further scholarship to address pipeline issues and barriers to the path to leadership for women. By advancing women in the health sciences, we advance the excellence and diversity that is so vital to achieving our academic mission.
