WISMAC Career Development Series
The Women in Science and Medicine Advisory Committee (WISMAC) organizes and sponsors seminars/workshops to promote success of our trainees and/or junior faculty. In 2011 the committee began collaboration together with the newly established Office for Faculty Diversity and Development.
Effective Negotiation Skills
Linda Wilcox, ombudsperson for Harvard Medical, was WISMAC's guest speaker in November 2009. She advised attendees on how to handle conflicts, achieve agreement and maintain relationships for the future. A video recording of her presentation is available on the intranet (accessed only on a UT Southwestern Medical Center campus-networked computer or via VPN).
High Achievers in Academic Medicine and Multi-tasking: Is it Good for Brain Health?

WISMAC organized a symposium on this topic in 2007 and filmed the session. Speakers included the medical school dean and chair of the Faculty Promotion & Tenure committee. The recording is available on the intranet (accessed only on a UT Southwestern campus-networked computer or via VPN).
