Mentoring and Networking

WISMAC's networking program matches newly appointed female faculty members with senior faculty women from different academic departments at UT Southwestern Medical Center. The program aims to both retain female faculty and foster their success with a friendly contact for advice and information on life both on- and off-campus.

If you're interested in participating in the program or would like more information, please email Carole Mendelson, Ph.D., at
