Women's Faculty Committee Mission Statement

The Mission of the Women's Faculty Committee of UMMS/UMMHC is to address the needs of women faculty and promote the status of women in the University of Massachusetts Medical School and the UMass Memorial Health Care clinical system.

Our goals include the following:

To encourage the hiring, promotion and retention of women faculty
To provide appropriate programming and special events to enhance career development.
To provide oversight in hiring individuals in administrative and leadership positions in the school and clinical system as well as oversight of the composition of the major committees in each system so as to have fair representation.
To promote Women's Health initiatives in the clinical system and medical school curriculum.
To provide mentoring of medical and graduate students for careers in clinical and academic medicine.
To create a supportive and welcoming environment so women faculty may grow in their roles as clinicians, educators, researchers, scholars, leaders and mentors.
