UAB School of Medicine Professor of Surgery Mary T. Hawn, M.D., and Professor of Pathology Robin G. Lorenz, M.D., Ph.D., were named fellows to the Hedwig van Ameringen Executive Leadership in Academic Medicine® Program.Robin-Lorenz

ELAM, a core program of the Institute for Women’s Health and Leadership at Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia, Penn., is the only program in North America dedicated to preparing women for senior leadership roles in academic health science institutions, where they enhance institutional leadership diversity while contributing to organizational strategy and innovation. The one-year, part-time program combines three week-long in-residence sessions with distance learning, designed to take the leadership lessons gained from the classroom to practice in the Fellows’ institutions.

Each Fellow is supported by the dean or other senior official of her institution in her nomination for the program and continued mentorship. One aspect of this relationship is the curricular requirement to conduct an Institutional Action Project, developed in collaboration with the senior leadership and designed to address a strategic institutional priority.
