The U-M Medical School is soliciting nominations for the fourth cohort of the Rudi Ansbacher Women in Academic Medicine Leadership Scholars Program.

This intensive 18-month leadership development program was initially designed to accelerate the development of women for senior positions in academic medicine and health care. It is open to all in leadership roles who have a demonstrated commitment to supporting the advancement of women.

Developed in partnership with Linkage, Inc., and the Stephen M. Ross School of Business at U-M, the program will provide individuals with insights about their leadership strengths and challenges to facilitate self-awareness and opportunities for growth.

The deadline to submit a nomination is Oct. 8. Click here for more detailed information on the program and follow this link to submit a nomination.

For faculty nominees, applicants must hold the rank of associate or full professor in a medical, dental or health sciences school and have had a significant leadership role.

For administrative nominees, applicants must hold a significant leadership role (such as senior administrator, CEO, COO, CIO, CMO, etc.) in a medical, dental, nursing or public health school, or academic hospital/health system, and have had administrative experience in personnel and budget management.

Applicants must be nominated by the dean of their institution, their departmental chair or the chief executive officer of their academic health center. If the nomination comes from the CEO, please provide a secondary nomination from the school of primary academic appointment. Each applicant is strongly advised to discuss the application with her nominator before applying.

Special consideration will be given to those nominees designated as Emerging Leaders with demonstrated leadership capacity who are in a significant leadership role.

Once the nominations have closed, selected nominees will receive an invitation to complete a formal application by Nov. 2.
