Women in Academic Medicine and Science (WAMS)

The Women in Academic Medicine and Science (WAMS) committee was formed to address the under-representatiion of females in academic medicine.  Our aim is to support and nurture the careers of female academics in the College of Medical and Dental Sciences.

Is it possible to combine academic life with family life? This has been a key question many early career researchers have asked themselves before embarking on their chosen career. Our academics explain how they achieve this, with the help and support of the Athena SWAN Initiative, in this video.

The Athena SWAN (Scientific Women’s Academic Network) charter was established in June 2005, and encourages the advancement of female academics in UK Higher Educational institutions.
