We received an overwhelming response of applications for attending the virtual Harvard Medical School Career Advancement and Leadership Skills for Women in Healthcare conference from November 1-3. Unfortunately, we were not able to fund participation of all of the applicants. As stated in the application, this year we decided to accept applications on a first come, first serve basis. We would, therefore, like to congratulate the first 5 women who applied:
- Olivia Aranha, MD, PhD (Oncology)
- Jessica Silva-Fisher, PhD (Oncology)
- Jennie Kwon, DO, MSCI (Medicine)
- Sina Jasim, MD, MPH (Endocrine)
- Maya Jerath, MD, PhD (Allergy & Immunology)
We recognize the need for further opportunities to build on leadership, career building and organizational skills and, In collaboration with the Office of the Vice Chair of Education, the Office of Health Equity, the Forum for Women in Medicine, and the Department of Medicine, will continue to work on providing opportunities to develop and recognize these skills.
