From the Dean

Dean Trevor Young


If Culture Eats Strategy, Let’s Change the Menu

One of the privileges of working in academia is the opportunity to bring smart people together to work on difficult problems. Research funding. Graduate student pathways. Competency-based medical training.

The complexity of each of these could inform multiple PhD theses — and that’s only a sampling of the many issues Faculty of Medicine leaders are championing.

Cutting across all domains, however, is one particularly persistent challenge: the lack of advancement of women in academic medicine.
