Women in Medicine & Science (WIMS) is an association of the entire female faculty of the College of Medicine, College of Health Professions and College of Nursing at SUNY Upstate Medical University. The overriding goal of WIMS is to enhance the status of women on the College of Medicine, College of Health Professions and College of Nursing faculty.
Specifically we see our task as enhancing the retention and development of existing female faculty and facilitating the recruitment of new female faculty. From time to time WIMS takes on issues that are important for the success of female faculty at the schools. The group provides networking between women in different departments and support for women at Upstate. WIMS meets monthly. We have a listserve that discusses issues of importance to women faculty at Upstate. WIMS sponsors a yearly Women in Medicine & Science Teaching Day and supports social events for faculty from the Upstate campus.
