Women in Science & Medicine

Archived Women in Science and Medicine schedules

Mission Statement: To inspire, encourage, and enable women in the Medical Scientist Training Program (MD/PhD) to achieve their personal and professional goals as developing physician scientists through open discussion of potential career obstacles and interaction with successful female role models.

The MSTP Women in Science and Medicine Group, in collaboration with the Office of Medical Education, co-sponsors research seminar presentations by invited external women physician scientists. Opportunities are provided for MSTP students to meet with these invited speakers.  The Group also  hosts social gatherings for women MSTP students and University of Minnesota faculty to engage in discussions focused on career development, mentoring, and leadership. These meetings foster relationships between students and female role models in the scientific and medical communities.
