Applications open for the AAMC Early Career Women Faculty Leadership Development Seminar

The application period for the Early Career Women Faculty Leadership Development Seminar will open in mid-February. This year’s seminar will take place at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis, July 19-22, 2022. The seminar’s curriculum is highly focused on gaining leadership knowledge and skills that will enable you to better prepare for advancement and promotion. As such, applicants should be actively considering their next promotion opportunity and seeking strategies for progressing to the next stage of their career.

Due to high demand for this program and limited capacity, we want to make certain you are aware of important changes to the application process, as outlined below, that will take effect when applications open.

Application Period
The application period will remain open for a maximum of four weeks and will close once applications exceed program capacity. Once closed, the AAMC will review applications to ensure all applicants meet the criteria for the target audience and the cohort consists of participants with a broad array of specialties and areas of focus in academic medicine, including both clinicians and basic science researchers who represent a variety of institutions from all regions of the country.
Application Criteria and Requirements
Moving forward, a letter of support will no longer be required as part of the application submission process. However, a current curriculum vitae must still be submitted. As stated above, due to high demand, we are unable to accept registrants outside of the program’s target audience -women physicians and scientists with an appointment at an AAMC member school of medicine, with a minimum of two years of experience (from the date of the seminar) as an Assistant Professor.

As with previous application cycles, more than one applicant from an institution may apply; however, per the criteria described above, we will continue to only accept a small number of applicants from each institution.
