Women in Medicine (WIM) Mentoring Programs 2019-2020


The Women in Medicine Mentor Program promotes connections between women medical students at Alpert Medical School early in their educational and professional studies with women physicians based at Brown affiliated hospitals and in the community.

Through events such as the WIM Mentoring Night and WIM Specialty Night, students will explore different themes in mentoring groups led by women physician faculty and residents. This is also an opportunity for students to learn about a medical specialty and consider ways in shaping career goals in medicine from the perspectives of a woman physician.

WIM Mentoring Night

The purpose of WIM Mentoring Night is to offer women medical students the opportunity to explore different themes in small groups led by women physicians.  In addition, we aim to promote connections between women medical students early in their educational and professional studies with women physicians at the Alpert Medical School and in the local community.  An additional goal is to foster continued contact between students and physician mentors who connect at this event. Informal discussions at the WIM Mentoring Night will focus on:

  • Career paths in medicine from the perspectives of women physicians.
  • Different approaches to work-life balance in shaping your career.
  • Women in academic medicine and leadership positions.
  • How to engage effectively with a mentor.

WIM Specialty Night

Women physician faculty and residents will represent different specialty areas in discussion clusters. Alpert Medical School women medical students will participate in specific clusters for the program. The goal is to offer students insights into the residency experience and medical specialties from the unique viewpoint of women physicians.
