This national award recognizes the school’s commitment to supporting and advocating for the professional advancement of women in medicine and science.
“This tremendous honor truly reflects the hard work of our faculty to create a working and learning environment that inspires leadership and nurtures success,” said Julie Ann Freischlag, MD, CEO of Wake Forest Baptist and dean of School of Medicine. “Being recognized is also a direct result of the efforts of our Women in Medicine and Science program, which has led active and innovative programs to support women at the Medical Center for 26 years.”
The Women in Medicine and Science program was established in 1992 and focuses on mentoring, career development, research, education and work-life integration programs that passionately support the recruitment, retention and promotion of women across the organization.
Since the AAMC award was first given in 1995, it has recognized 23 individuals and 18 programs across the country.
